HPU To Host Design, Art And Technology Symposium

HIGH POINT, N.C., Feb. 20, 2009 – High Point University will have quite a large guest at the Design, Art and Technology Symposium – a 55-foot-long cardboard creation named “Gulliver,” a piece created by internationally acclaimed artist James Grashow and a team of HPU students. The reception for “Gulliver” will be held at 6:30 p.m. on March 5 in the Sechrest Gallery of HPU?s Hayworth Fine Arts Center.
The March 5-6 symposium, which will also host Alexander Julian and Dr. Idit Harel Caperton, will include a special kick-off presentation for the Gulliver Project at 9 a.m. on March 2 in the Hayworth Fine Arts Center, where construction of “Gulliver” will begin.
“The symposium will focus on the underlying concept that design, as a fundamental component of creative endeavors – from fine arts to Web design to the design of functional objects – matters to all of us in multiple ways and across varying disciplines,” says Dr. Elizabeth Dull, coordinator of the Interior Design Program and the 2009 coordinator of the Design, Art and Technology Symposium at HPU.
All events are free and open to the public; however, registration is necessary for March 5-6 events.
