Rob Adams Travels to Italy in July

Rob Adams, instructor of painting, drawing, and design in the Art Department, will be traveling to Italy this July. Rob received funding from LCC Faculty Professional Development and will use this funding to "travel to the Collegium Phaenomenologicum in Umbria, Italy this July 9-31. I'll be attending conference sessions about aesthetics, phenomenology of experience, and other topics important to contemporary art, with top scholars in the field. I also am offering art lessons to conference participants during free times, as an adjunct to our discussions. Additionally, I'll have the opportunity of studying the work of artist Alberto Burri, who worked in town. The Burri Foundation offers extensive museum collections and archives of the artist's life and work. I plan to make works informed by his colorist collage aesthetic, both to display at the conference hotel, and at my faculty show in the LCC Art Gallery during Fall term, 2010. I expect the trip will make me a more valuable asset to LCC, broadening the knowledge and experience I am
able to pass along to my students." Contact: Rob Adams:
