MU’s Cast Gallery Provides Students With a Link to the Past

Recently I wrote a short piece for the Columbia Missourian to highlight the work the Museum (and my students!) are doing; click here to read the piece. Here are a couple fantastic works from two of my students this semester:

I’ve asked my students to comment below regarding their experiences at the Gallery. Many of them wrote compelling reflections about drawing from the casts, so I’m pleased to offer them some space to share those thoughts.




Office Space

I honestly love the fact that my office in the Art Department at the University of Missouri doubles as a prop room…

PS – this is my 300th post here… my first post was on today’s date 3 years ago. There’s been some good stuff over the years. I’m glad to have kept a record this way…
