Dingledein Winner Lecturing and Moderate an Art Critique at River Campus 

The Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum along with the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri are proud to host a lecture September 30, and art critique October 1, with special guest Dr. Grant Lund.

Dr. Grant Lund, who taught at Southeast Missouri State University for 28 years and was awarded the title of emeritus professor in 1999, will return to Cape Girardeau to give a lecture and moderate an art critique, for artists and art educators.

“The Genesis of Art,” will be the topic of a lecture September 30, at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus. His presentation discusses how a person develops concepts and creativity.

“Art and life is a paradox. Creativity is the suture line occurring where chaos and order are joined. Significance in art occurs when a finite vision of the individual creator is compounded with universal principles,” says Lund.

The presentation begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum. The presentation is open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.

A drop-in art critique will occur at River Campus October 1, from 10 a.m. to noon. Artists and educators are encouraged to bring their works for critique.

Lund received his master of fine art in painting and printmaking at Brigham Young University. He earned a doctorate of art education from Penn State University. Lund is a previous recipient of the Otto F. Dingeldein Award, given annually by the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri for achievement of excellence in the arts.

Lund is currently active creating, exhibiting, writing and speaking about art. He is known in this area for designing the Jackson mural, the William Faulkner mural in Southeast University’s Kent Library and the Stephen Hawking mural for the College of Science.

River Campus is located at 518 S. Fountain St. in Cape Girardeau, Mo. For more information, call Crisp Museum (573) 651-2260.
