Public events in the School of Art & Design + Performing Arts Division, week of September 3 - September 10, 2023. All events are free and open to the public.

Wednesday, September 6, 4:30pm Visiting Artist Glass Sculptor Anne Petters Binns Merrill 106 Room C. Anne Petters is a multi media artist with a strong background in glass. She received a Diploma in Fine Arts from the Institute for Ceramics and Glass Art, Hoehr-Grenzhausen, Germany and a MFA in Sculpture/ Glass from Alfred University, New York. Born in Dresden in 1978, she grew up in the German Democratic Republic. She understands the political change in her country, which she experienced as a displacement of reality, as a basic influence on her lifestyle and artistic work. Her interest in controlling and displaying moments of our fleeting, vulnerable existence leads her to a poetic, metaphoric use of glass and other materials, including natural phenomena.
