Artist Creighton Michael visits Colgate

By Sierra Larson '16 on October 23, 2013


I just attended a lecture by American artist Creighton Michael about his work, some of which is currently on exhibition in Clifford Art Gallery on campus. The lecture was put on by the Department of Art & Art History as part of a series every Wednesday afternoon. My professor for Challenges of Modernity encourages my class to attend these weekly lectures and then respond about what in particular resonated with us and how it connects to concepts discussed in class. What I found most interesting in the installation, called “Pattern Play,” was the simplicity of his materials, including staples and string, as well as the balance of light and shadow. Looking forward to discussing it in class!
