The Wells College Book Arts Center presents the 41st Susan Garretson Swartzburg '60 Memorial Lecture, titled "Investigating A Sense of Place through Stillness & Movement." Former Wells Victor Hammer Fellow Jenna Rodriguez will give the talk at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 14, in Stratton 209. This event is free and open to the public.

Jenna Rodriguez is a collector, observer, and artist currently based in Chicago. She recently completed a residency at Columbia College Chicago during which she completed artwork for this exhibition. Last summer she was the recipient of The Wingate Foundation Grant, the Edwards Foundation Grant, and the College Book Arts Association's Project Assistant Grant, which allowed her to attend a papermaking course at Penland School of Craft, build a papermaking studio for Wells College, and continue work on Still. She graduated from Columbia College Chicago in 2013 where she received a MFA in Interdisciplinary Book and Paper Arts. During this time she had a two-year print production fellowship for Journal of Artists Books (JAB) and taught letterpress printing classes at Columbia College and Spudnik Community Print Shop. Jenna received her BFA in 2009 in printmaking and photo media with a certification to teach K-12 art from Old Dominion University in Virginia where she grew up.

Preceding the lecture there will be a gallery reception for her exhibition STILL at the Wells String Room Gallery in Main Hall.
