Art professor selected for residency
Khara Koffel to spend a week at Maryland museum.
Artist Khara Koffel has been selected artist in residence for a week at the Annmarie Sculpture Garden and Arts Center in Maryland as part of the center’s Living Gallery.
"I can't even begin to tell you how much I am looking forward to immersing myself in my work for a week, as well as engaging a new community in discussions about contemporary sculpture,” said Koffel, an associate professor of art at MacMurray. “It will truly be an intense and gratifying experience."
During the week of Jan. 22-28, Koffel will be living in an artist apartment at the Annmarie Center and will be working in one of the center’s studios. She will talk to museum visitors about the process of creating her sculpture and demonstrate her techniques. Koffel will also give a lecture about her work. Koffel’s work can be viewed at www.kharakoffel.com.
A MacMurray faculty development grant helps defray the travel costs of the residency. The grants help MacMurray faculty develop their teaching and research skills and attend conferences and symposiums in their fields.
