Where Do We Migrate To?
Tuesday, October 25, 2016, 4:15pm
Peeler Auditorium

Blane De St. Croix’s work explores the geopolitical landscape through sculpture, installation, and work on paper. His research based method incorporates on the ground site visits, aerial fly-overs, photographic documentation, interviews, internet mining, and satellite imagery. Together, his artworks and research seek to facilitate an increased understanding of the shared social, political, environmental, and cultural climate challenges we face, both within our local communities, and in the international arena.

Born in Boston, Massachusetts, Blane De St. Croix was educated at Cranbrook Academy of Art, Bloomfield Hills, Michigan (M.F.A. Sculpture) and Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, Massachusetts (B.F.A. Sculpture with distinction). His work is represented by Fredericks & Freiser, New York, NY. Currently, he has two works in the exhibition Where Do We Migrate To? here at the Peeler Art Center.

Join Dr. Hiroko Chiba (Professor of Modern Languages) and Craig Hadley (Gallery Director) for a discussion centered on this pivotal moment in Japanese art history, and view 40 postwar prints from the DePauw University permanent art collection. This event is part of ArtsFest 2016: Art and Utopia.
