Visual Voices – “Making Meaningful Mischief” [Yes Men]

Visual Voices, a professional lecture series sponsored by the School of Art, invites eight nationally recognized visiting artists and designers to speak about their work and the world of art and design. In addition to providing a look inside the studios of these top professionals, the series offers students the opportunity to interact with them during daytime seminars and studio visits.

School of Art welcomes Andy Bichlbaum to the 2017-18 lecture series. Bichlbaum and his colleague Mike Bonanno define themselves as two weirdos who decided it would be amazing fun to stick it to the man. The two travel infiltrating conferences, producing fake newspapers, and other weirdness in order to expose the wrongdoings of miscellaneous, mostly corporate evildoers. To learn more about The Yes Men click here.
