Informed Curiosity
    The fall 2017 Informed Curiosity curriculum was based on the prints of internationally renowned artist Martin Puryear and their role in informing his sculptural works as explored in The Print Center’s exhibition Martin Puryear: Prints, 1962 – 2016. The show offered an in-depth investigation of the printed works created from 1962 to 2016. Students were introduced to Puryear’s early figurative works, which were influenced by his time spent in Africa as a Peace Corp volunteer through his recently created, large abstractions. They were encouraged to explore themes of identity, African American history, symbolism and abstraction through printmaking, photography and three-dimensional design.
