UH MFA Graphic Design Students Respond to Posse Comitatus
Five University of Houston graphic design graduate students - Jim DeVega, Laura Hill, Seth Lapeyrouse, Allen Van Luu, and Jason Wheeler - were tasked with conceptually responding to exhibition artists Chelsea Knight and Mark Tribe's work through personal investigations that converge cultural, social, historical, methodological, and/or technological contemporary issues within a graphic design context. This graduate-level graphic design seminar offered through the University of Houston School of Art encourages students to pursue advanced research in graphic design and critical theory. The students worked together with Professor of Art Sibylle Hagmann and DiverseWorks Associate Curator Rachel Cook to push the boundaries of design thinking and visual expression. Each student will give a presentation about their project and process, and each project will be on view in the DWOW gallery space.

Assistant Professor Sandra Zalman Receives American Association of University Women Fellowship
American Fellowships, AAUW’s oldest and largest funding program, date back to 1888 and support women scholars who are completing doctoral dissertations, conducting postdoctoral research, or finishing research for publication.
Professor Zalman plans to use her publication grant to complete her book which examines the history of Surrealism in the U.S. as a crossroads of avant-garde and popular culture that helped to shape the reception of modern art. She recently published an article on the clash between popular and avant-garde ideas of modern art in the journal Grey Room. Her work has been supported by the American Council of Learned Societies and the Andy Warhol Foundation.
