DESCRIPTION

Illinois artist and printmaker David Driesbach weaves rich narratives in his complex, colorful and whimsical etchings. Although Driesbach retired from teaching many years ago, he has continued a prodigious production. This exhibition attempts to summarize a lifetime of remarkable achievements. Co-organized with students enrolled in “Museum Exhibitions and Interpretation,” a graduate-level Museum Studies course.

Peter Olson, former student of David Driesbach, will present a lecture about working with David Driesbach on May 2nd at 1:00 p.m.
