2014 Biennial Faculty + Staff Exhibition, Even After Everything.
Philip J. Steele Gallery
Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design
October 9 – 29, 2014
The rich, creative accomplishments of our online and on-campus faculty and staff serve as a strong foundation for our college. The exhibition showcases art and design works created by members of our RMCAD community with themes that range from investigations into the peculiarities of nature to art commissioned for Mercedes-Benz.
I am happy that I could be a part of this art exhibit in the gallery named after our founder. I am so grateful that Phil Steele and the Steele family had the courage and tenacity to start and continue a world-class art college here in Colorado. During my time attending and teaching at Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design, I have meet the most incredible artists and mentors that have shaped so many ways of how I think about and practice art. Some of them are still there and their incredible work can be seen in this exhibit.
It has truly been an honor to serve as adjunct faculty member in the Illustration department for the past 6 years. Working with students one-on-one on their illustrations, branding, and marketing has been a privilege and inspiring experience.
However, my favorite RMCAD memory is a particular day during my freshman year when I met my future husband, Benjamin Hummel. We have now been married for 12 years and he has been who has been super encouraging to me in developing as an artist and entrepreneur. I can’t tell you how grateful I am for him. Benjamin is an accomplished illustrator and art teacher. You can see his work below.
