STATESBORO —Famed artist Dan Funderburgh will be visiting Georgia Southern this Tuesday to give a talk on his art and work, some of which is currently being showcased in the University Gallery. 

A Brooklyn-based illustrator, artist and wallpaper designer, Funderburgh’s work pushes the limits of logos, graphics, and pattern density. His art has been showcased at the Museum of Art and Design in New York City, and he’s collaborated with big names like the New York Times, Nike and Cole Haan.

The art being shown at GS ranges from prints to scrolls, flags, and elaborate cut-outs. His talk will be discussing his work as well as his career as a multi-format artist, and will be followed by a reception.

“I hope gallery visitors, whether students or members of the larger community, will learn about the expanded field of options open to artists–printmakers, in this specific instance,” University Gallery Director and Assistant Professor of Art Jason Hoelscher, Ph.D. said. “That Dan is able to work with such a range of subject matter and such a range of forms is very impressive.” 

Funderburgh’s talk will be this Tuesday, at 5 p.m. in the Art Building Room 2071. The reception will be in the first-floor galleries of the Center for Art and Theatre from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Both events are free and open to the public.
