Welcome To Spring!

In the 4th floor gallery of the 320 Newbury Street Building, Richard Griswold, Associate Provost and Dean of Students, has installed a series of over 50 watercolors completed over the winter break, while he was a Fellow in Architecture at the
MacDowell Colony. They are very bright.

In addition to engaging in research tied to his undergraduate Design Principles course, he devoted some time each day to creating these works. They are basically drawings in paint, the brush strokes accumulate to investigate pattern, movement space -- and color. The works are displayed in a sequence tracing the iterative process by which they were conceived. Alongside this work, Rich documented his process in a designated sketchbook which has been part of The Sketchbook Project 2011, which is currently on a five city tour.

Detailed images of Rich's work, sketchbook, and winter studio can be found here.
