Graphic Design at SECCA, Geek Girl Rising, and Violinist Kevin Lawrence on Triad Arts Weekend
Today on the show we’ll get graphic at the South Eastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston-Salem. Their new world class exhibit involving the input of more than 200 artists is Graphic Design: Now in Production. Then, from graphic we get geeky at the Comic Book City Con in Greensboro. Among the many offerings there you’ll find a special panel discussion called "Geek Girl Rising”. Eddie Garcia chats it up with organizer Rachel Scott, and Bethany Chafin talks with two time Eisner award winning artist Hope Larson. And we wrap things up with a break from visual arts banter with Bach—Johann Sebastian Bach to be precise. J.S. was arguably the greatest keyboardist of the Baroque, and he often included harpsichord and organ effects in his writing for strings. Bach’s Sonatas for solo violin provides an excellent example, and violin virtuoso Mr. Kevin Lawrence is here to share the many steep challenges and awesome rewards hidden in this monumental work Live in Studio A.
SECCA: Graphic Design: Now in Production
Over the past decade, graphic design has grown tremendously in terms of its reach, expanding from a highly specialized profession to a tool used by many of us. Today, graphic design is the largest of the design professions, and this week one of the most ambitious graphic design exhibitions is coming to the Triad. Graphic Design: Now in Production opens at the South Eastern Center for Contemporary Art on Saturday, October 26th. Co-organized by the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York, the enormous exhibit features work produced since 2000 that’s been assembled by more than 200 designers.
