Visual Voices – “Recipe for Change … “

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 Brian Noyes to the 2017-18 lecture series. Noyes pursued his passion of food and cooking launching his Red Truck Bakery in 1984. The former art director of several national magazines including Smithsonian, Preservation and House & Garden, moved to the nation’s capital to become the art director of The Washington Post. Noyes and Dwight McNeill bought a small farm 50 miles west in the Virginia village of Orlean, planted fruit trees, and explored the Fauquier and Rappahannock countryside in a red 1954 Ford farm truck that Noyes bought from fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger.
