BGSU Legend Lou Krueger, Professor of Photography to speak, show work

Continuing to celebrate notable faculty across the Arts, the Bowling Green State University School of Art cordially invites you to the second lecture in the new Legends Series on Friday, April 4 in the Fine Arts Center, room 204.

"Make it Big and Paint it Gold," by Louis Krueger, the iconic photography professor, will display a range of images, dealing with a favorite piece of his concerning the Iraqi War, a photograph of his parents detailing their vulnerability, and an overall question about what is normal.

Krueger has been featured in national juried exhibitions since 1975, wining awards since 1981 for photography. He has collections featured in the State University of New York, Western Michigan University and Northern Illinois University. Before becoming the Bowling Green State University School of Art director (1995 – 2000), he helped form the Art Photo program emerging at Syracuse University in 1978, eventually becoming the Department of Art Media Studies chair and the assistant dean to the College of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse.

"Squirrel Man" (June 2013) was the featured image of the week at the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art in November, 2013 and was also exhibited at the Sylvia White Gallery in Ventura, CA last summer.
