schooling you

Hank Willis Thomas

We've been remiss on calendaring good PMMNLS lectures, but there's a not-to-be-missed one next week. Hank Willis Thomas, "a contemporary African American visual artist and photographer whose primary interests are race, advertising and popular culture," will be lecturing on Ads Imitate Art, Art Imitates Life, Life Imitates Ads. About his work, Thomas writes: "[The] B(r)anded series is a result of an exploration, and subsequent appropriation of the language of advertising. By employing the ubiquitous language of advertising in my work, I am able to talk explicitly about race, class and history in a medium that almost anyone can decode."

Artist lecture • 7:30pm • May 10
PSU Campus • 1914 SW Park (Corner of SW Broadway & Hall) • Shattuck Hall Annex Rm 198

Karl Burkheimer

Karl Burkheimer, sculptor and Associate Professor and Department Head of the wood program at OCAC, will be lecturing this week for Clark College's ongoing art talk series.

Artist lecture • 7pm • May 5
Clark College • 1933 Fort Vancouver Way, Vancouver, WA • Penguin Union Building (PUB) 161
