Drawing with Trevor Flynn
Thursday June 17, at 7 pm / free to MAG and rochester contemporary members

"20 Fresh Perceptions: uncommon Sense and the Visual Imagination." British artist trevor Flynn leads a lively discussion based on his work and study of innovators as they generate and develop ideas. Flynn is a major instigator of drawing and idea generation within the creative industries and education. His ideas have been honed through participation in england’s Big Draw, his own Sketchmob uK, and courses his company (Drawing at Work ) develops for architects and engineers. Flynn’s talk traces the process of successful designers, engineers, architects and artists, in a creative cycle of imaginative observation, transformation, and application of new ideas in artifacts and products. the talk richly illustrates creative processes used to visualize forms that do not already exist.
Sponsored by the Cecile Bauer Kluge Creative Workshop Endowment Fund and presented in collaboration with the Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo) State of the City 2010 Exhibition (August 6–September 19).

Friday, June 18, 9 am–noon Or Saturday, June 19, 1–4 pm Fee: $35 (non-member), $30 (MAG or roco member)
