My spring 16 Understanding the Visual II class participants at Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design paid a studio visit and received a tour of the art collection at the Pfister, courtesy of Artist-in-Residence 2015-2016, Todd Mrozinski.
Todd talked us through part of his process painting his Shadow Series. As a MIAD alum, Todd had a lot to offer my students, welcoming us into his studio for an intimate chat.
Todd Mrozinski, Pfister Artist-Artist-Residence 2015-2016, invited Molly to read at his curated "Teachers" show, at which he displayed a retrospective of his work alongside selections from his Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design teachers.
Kavon Cortez Jones also performed some of his work at the January 22, 2016 event, including "Paris of the Midwest," an ode to Milwaukee that's become one of my favorite of his poems.
Molly paid homage to many of the teachers in her life, including her father, Ronald Snyder, professor of American History at Milwaukee Area Technical College and UW-Milwaukee.
