Curious about 3D printing? Join us for a FREE workshop at the de Saisset Museum and learn to create and print your own 3D object.
You can generate a new design from scratch or manipulate an object drawn from a library of images created by artist Corinne Takara. Participants are encouraged to reflect on the history of food in this region or to use their own experiences, memories, and associations with food as inspiration.
A 3D printer will be on site and a selection of designs will be printed in three dimensions and integrated into A Serving of Shapes, an exhibition on view at the de Saisset January 31-March 16, 2014. The exhibition will also include a custom-printed tablecloth and a digital projection that will capture all of the designs explored in the workshops.
This project is made possible with the support of SCU's School of Engineering and The Forge Garden.

Multimedia Artist and Storyteller Willie Little...
His Journey of Self-discovery
Wednesday, February 19, 2014, 7 p.m., free
Willie Little discusses his artistic journey and creative processes through multimedia art, installation, and storytelling. Through the use of humor, satire, and irony, he creates visual narratives of stories that range from the warm and fuzzy Americana of his childhood in the 1960s and 1970s to the uncomfortable social and racial issues important to him in the 21st century.
This artist lecture is co-sponsored by the de Saisset Museum and the Department of Art and Art History.

Artist Lecture: Hung Liu
Thursday, May 8, 7 p.m., free
Hung Liu joins us to talk about her work as part of our quarterly artists lecture series offered in conjunction with SCU's Department of Art and Art History.
Hung Liu was born in Changchun, China in 1948, growing up under the Maoist regime before immigrating to the US in 1984. In her work, Liu challenges the documentary authority of historical Chinese photographs by subjecting them to the more reflective process of painting while working to uncover the cultural and personal narratives fixed—but often concealed—in the photographic instant. She says of her work, “I turn old photographs in to new paintings."
