Lucky Dragons Lecture and Visit

We were happy [lucky] to have the art group Lucky Dragons lecture at PSU and visit the MFA program through studio visits and a dinner conversation. Check out the Lucky Dragons website.

Thanks to Lori (and Eric) (and Incoming Anna)

We owe Lori Gilbert a round of applause for her great work as MFA program assistant last term. She ably and creatively filled the considerable shoes of the previous MFA-PA Eric Steen (who was never properly blog-thanked himself for his awesome assistance last spring) and, like Eric, was somehow able to coherently interpret my rambling requests for assistance. Next up is Anna Gray, who, as you know, is already organizing the Vancouver trip and preparing for our new applicant reviews coming up next month (watch for the date).
