LA GRANDE, Ore. February 28, 2017 – Eastern Oregon University’s art department welcomes visiting artist Daniela Molnar to campus to give a public talk about her work 6 p.m. Thursday, March 9 in Zabel Hall Auditorium.

Molnar’s art and work argues for the animacy and sanctity of all beings. She works in a range of forms including painting, art direction, design, a collaborative poetry/visual art project, writing, activism and teaching. Her paintings focus on plant forms and color, posing formal questions about the distinction between figure and ground, and conceptual questions about the distinction between animate and inanimate.

Molnar is a trip leader and founding member of the Board for Signal Fire, an organization that provides opportunities for artists to engage with public wild lands.

She is the art editor for the The Bear Deluxe Magazine, a publication devoted to exploring environmental issues through the arts, and co-editor of Leaf Litter, Signal Fire’s art and literary journal.

Molnar is also the founding director of the Art + Ecology program and a full-time assistant professor at the Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) in Portland, where she has been teaching undergraduate and graduate students about painting, drawing, environmental issues, visual culture, critical theory, pedagogy and illustration since 2007.

For additional information on this event contact Kerri Rosenstein in art department at krosenstein@eou.edu or 541-962-3467.
