Visiting Artist Lecture Series
- Nora Sturges, 10:00-11:00am, Room 006, Lazarus Center- Sponsored by Post Baccalaureate Fine Art
- Guiseppe Castellano, 12:15-1:15pm, Lazarus Center Auditorium- Sponsored by Illustration Practice, MFA
Award-winning Illustrator, and Art Director, Guiseppe Castellano graduated from the RISD majoring in illustration. He spends his days designing children's books at Penguin Group, and his nights illustrating them. Guiseppe currently oversees the imprints of Grosset & Dunlap, PSS!, Warne, PYR, and Poptropica creating over 270 books a year, in every conceivable format. Every Monday he participates in Mentee Monday at Penguin answering questions. He likes to give advice on his #arttips series on Twitter [@pinocastellano]. One piece of advice is that “A huge mistake illustrators make is thinking that their outreach is somehow a bother to the recipient. Countless times, illustrators have said they don't want to send cold-emails because they think it's an imposition”. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, son, and twin daughters. His lecture is sponsored by the MFA in Illustration Practice.

Proposals will be accepted between September 15 and November 12, 2014. Surdna staff, with support from outside experts, will present recommendations to the Surdna board and final decisions will be made in early April, 2015.
