As computer interfaces flatten and links no longer need the visual cues of physical objects to be interpreted as links, new, digitally native, and abstract semiotics develop. In the advent of digital manufacturing and new means of experiencing digital information (augmented reality, virtual reality) lie new ways of understanding form—in context, in motion, and in the shift towards a post-industrial economy. Paris-based artist, designer, and programmer, Cedric Flazinski, received an MDes from the Design Academy Eindhoven, Eindhoven, Netherlands, and a BTS in Industrial Design from ENSAAMA Olivier-de-Serres, Paris France. In 2012, Flazinski co-founded N O R M A L S, a pan-media project aimed at building an entire fictional future society where each element is studied, prototyped and added to a series of graphic novels.

Thursday, November 10 | 5:30 P.M. Reception, 6:15 P.M. Program
SALON CIRCLE | WILLIAM REESE, New Haven, Connecticut
“Stamped With A National Character:
Nineteenth-Century American Color Plate Books”

Appreciating the present requires examining the past—see how the technology of printing has progressed and shaped books today. William Reese, owner of the leading rare book dealership William Reese Company will be our guest to share a vibrantly illustrated talk outlining the history of color plate printing in America. Distinguished scholar and avid book collector, Reese has helped shape some of the leading U.S. public and private libraries, including the 50,000+ volume holding of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.

This event is limited to Ulrich Salon Circle members, learn more about Salon Circle and how you can join.

Wednesday, November 16 | 10 A.M. Refreshments, 10:30 A.M. Program

Kansas: A frontier where strong people with strong opinions find their voice. Throughout our turbulent history, Kansans have vociferously and voraciously pursued the greater good, working both within established systems as well as outside these systems to affect change. With these movements come a rich array of protest art—art made to draw attention to a topic of great concern in the hope of eliciting change or expanding the conversation. From John Steuart Curry’s depiction of John Brown’s call to action to M.T. Liggett’s politically charged fence-line artwork, protest art in Kansas includes an array of forms. Sometimes humorous, sometimes biting, and often clever, this presentation will look at the ways artists craft their messages.
