Cornish Presents Alumni Retrospective Series: Dan Webb “Unring the Bell”
January 20, 2010
Seattle, WA – Sculptor Dan Webb (Art ‘91) is featured in the second installment of this exhibition series, presented at Cornish College of the Arts. Part of the Alumni Retrospective Series, Unring the Bell emphasizes Webb’s artistic development from his student experiences at Cornish through recent years. Featuring a comic book co-created by Dan Webb and Cornish student Kelly Martin (Art ’10) the exhibition focuses on student and early work, especially that which plays a key role in the artist’s development. The artist’s following solo show at Greg Kucera Gallery (opening February 18) picks up where this exhibition leaves off, and visitors are encouraged to visit both venues for a cohesive look at his career.
The Alumni Retrospective Series focuses on the trajectory of one artist’s career within the context of their Cornish education. Featuring class projects and other work from their student days through their development into their current work, these exhibitions provide the public and students a different perspective on the work of an established Cornish graduate.
