Provost's Forum: Jim Neel

BSC Associate Professor of Art Jim Neel will be featured in a Provost's Forum event this Thursday, November 29. Neel's presentation, entitled, "Les Enfants de la Terre: Children in the Line of Fire," will take place in the art history lecture room.

In October 2010, Neel was awarded the Southeastern College Art Conference Individual Artist's Fellowship for "Les Enfants de la Terre," a series of sculptures in terracotta and iron that addreses the issue of child soldiers. The diminutive scale of the figures strike viewers with their physical fragility and small size, as they call to attention the use of children as soldiers. Neel received a $3,000 award to apply toward the project in addition to the honor of the recognition.

Come enjoy this Provost's Forum event and collect a cultural credit!
