Gary


It is with great sadness that I say goodbye to my boss, mentor and friend, Dr. Gary Greenberg. He took a big chance on a naive and inexperienced kid right out of grad school and gave me an amazing opportunity at the Collaboratory, the little website that could. I can only hope to one day have a fraction of the vision, wisdom and optimism he had.


He will be greatly missed.

Imaging by Numbers

Monday, January 21st, 2008

If you happen to swing by Evanston between now and April 6th, I highly recommend going to the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art for the show curated by my colleague, Paul Hertz, Imaging by Numbers: A Historical View of the Computer Print.


This groundbreaking new exhibition examines the intersection of digital technology and the graphic arts. Imaging by Numbers surveys the use of computers in printmaking and drawing through approximately 60 works created by nearly 40 North American and European artists from the 1950s to the present.


The pieces in the show really are fantastic and give you a good idea of where we’ve come from and where we’re going.
