A poster designed by Scott Krejce, senior in Digital Media Arts, will be featured in an exhibition at the North American Review Writing Conference, held April 19-21 at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, IA. Krejce’s poster, originally designed for a DMA class project, was one of 40 designs selected from a nationwide call for submissions on the conference’s theme, “Open Space of Democracy.”
Founded in Boston in 1815, the North American Review is the oldest and one of the most culturally significant literary magazines in the United States. The 2019 conference commemorates the journal’s 50th year at UNI.

Tuesday, April 25: Artist talk with digital print/video artist Eman Alshawaf
The Digital Media Arts department is pleased to welcome our spring Artist-in-Residence, Eman Alshawaf. Alshawaf is a digital artist and graphic designer from Kuwait; her art and research explore the impact of contemporary computer technology on language and the human experience, the construction of beliefs, memories, and how our past influences our present. Alshawaf’s methods utilize photography, video, and type, and the resulting works live as prints, projections, and installations. She holds an MFA in Digital Arts and Digital Imaging from Pratt Institute (NY), and is currently completing a doctoral degree in Graphic Design from the University of Minnesota.
Join us for an artist’s talk on Tuesday, April 25 during convo hour (11:30-12:30) in Drew Fine Arts room 220. Alshawaf will share examples of her print and video artworks, and insights into her research and creative production. She will also introduce a site-specific experiential work created for the Hamline campus, interpreting the atmospheric qualities of underutilized physical locations through a fictional memoir narrative, encouraging participants to see familiar spaces through new eyes. Free and open to the public.
Alshawaf will be in residence with DMA from April 24-28; in addition to the public artist’s talk, she will visit several DMA classes as a guest critic / guest speaker, and her work will be featured in the DFA lobby gallery.
