CSULB Painting Professor Fran Siegel has a solo exhibition at the Fowler Museum

Posted on July 25, 2017 by School of Art

Lineage through landscapeCSULB Painting Professor Fran Siegel has a solo exhibition entitled Lineage through Landscape: Tracing Egun in Brazil by Fran Siegel at the Fowler Museum at UCLA. The exhibition will run from July 23 through December 10, 2017, with an artist reception on August 27th.  As Carolina A. Miranda wrote in the LA Times  “[Lineage] is a large-scale drawing project inspired by a recent residency in Brazil, where she conducted research in, among other places, the Island of Itaparica, an important center of Afro-Brazilian religious practice. [Siegel’s] 40-foot-long piece consists of a weaving that brings together strips of fabric and drawings of sacred plants on translucent film — a record of the landscapes she inhabited, and the troubled histories some of those represent.”

 


CSULB Animation class gets opportunity to work with Pixar Animation Studios

Posted on July 24, 2017 by School of Art

IMG_6929This summer CSULB was highly honored to have Pixar work with our class ART311 Writing about Visual Art  – a section geared towards animation students. Spearheaded by Elyse Klaidman – Pixar Educational Outreach, Kim Diaz – Pixar Recruitment and Talent Outreach,  Beth Sasseen – Pixar University Relations and Aubry Mintz – CSULB Head of Animation. CSULB students were visited by a variety of Pixar artists throughout the summer term to help them develop ideas for their short animated films.
We were thrilled to work with Scott Morse, Domee Shi, Mary Coleman and Lelia Chesloff who presented to the class at different stages, teaching them about story, short films, the production pipeline and how to pitch their film ideas. These amazing artists also worked closely with our students to help them find and build their stories which they will hopefully produce in the coming semester.
We could not be more grateful to Pixar for such an enlightening and rich program!
