Fine art photographer David Hilliard, the second artist in this year’s Lamar Dodd School of Art Visiting Artist/Scholar series, will give a lecture on his work on Sept. 27 at 5:30 p.m. in room 101 of the Student Learning Center. Following the lecture will be an opening reception for Catch and Release, an exhibition of Hilliard’s work in the Main Gallery of the Visual Arts Building on Jackson Street. Both the lecture and the reception are free and open to students, faculty and the public. The exhibition is on display until Oct. 21.
Currently an assistant professor of photography at the Massachusetts College of Art, Hilliard has had three solo exhibitions already this year: Embellish at the Mark Moore Gallery in Santa Monica and at Jackson Fine Art in Atlanta and David Hilliard-New Works at the Bernard Toale Gallery in Boston. His work is in the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Los Angeles County Museum. While on campus from Sept. 25-29, Hilliard will work directly with School of Art students, especially photography majors.
