The South Dakota State University School of Design will be hosting artist Ali Hval during the Stuart Artist-in-Residence program this September.
A public lecture from Hval will be held Sept. 20 from 1-2 p.m. at the Oscar Larson Performing Arts Center in Founders Recital Hall on the SDSU campus, followed by an open studio event Sept. 29 from 4-6 p.m. at the Ritz Gallery in Grove Hall.
With an interdisciplinary approach, Hval combines ceramic, fabric, installation and painting in her work. She has completed over 30 public murals and projects across the United States ranging from large-scale projects for nonprofits and municipal entities to projects that have directly involved community members in the painting and designing process.
Hval, who currently lives and works in Iowa City, Iowa, earned her Master of Fine Arts from the University of Iowa and her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Alabama.
The Stuart Artist-in-Residence program works to enrich the SDSU community, creating opportunities for artists, students and faculty. Each fall, a national or international artist is invited to make art on campus for a month, hosting open studio hours and an event at the end of the residency.
