BEHIND THE BLING: LECTURE WITH NORA KRUG!

Behind the Bling Letter.72Where better to have a lecture that highlights bling than at FIT?!
The MFA in Illustration Program, School of Graduate Studies is so excited to bring the first lecture in a series that will highlight the stories of award winning projects- you know, the bling that acknowledges the admiration of one’s peers for an illustration. Now, we all know that an award is not the only barometer of good work- not by a long shot- but it is a great thrill and sense of accomplishment.

So, how does it happen? What is the journey? Nora Krug will be on our campus, telling us the story behind her bling- the prestigious Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators in New York for Shadow Atlas, an encyclopedia of ghosts. The art director, Enrico Fiammelli, will join us from ITALY in live time! We are so excited and will remind you again- SAVE the DATE! Wednesday, March 18, 6:30 pm in Katie Murphy Amphitheatre. Open to the public! Spread the word!!
