The Lamar Dodd School of Art will present a lecture by artist Henrik Drescher Sept. 2 at 5:30 p.m. in Room S151 of the art school.

Drescher is an award-winning artist, writer and illustrator whose travels and consistent bookmaking have fueled his career. With drawing, collage and text, he reimagines iconographies and cultural experiences in self-contained notebooks that inform both his illustrations and fine art practice. Drescher’s lecture, part of the Visiting Artist/Scholar Lecture Series, is open free to the public.

Drescher’s works are in collections of the U.S. Library of Congress, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Getty Museum in Los Angeles and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. They also have been published in top newspapers, magazines and journals throughout the world, including Rolling Stone, Time, The New York Times and more.
