The University of Maine Intermedia MFA program is pleased to announce the first lecturer, Aaron Stephan, of their 2011-2012 Visiting Artist series.  The artist will present a public lecture on Monday September 26th at 7pm in Lord Hall on the University of Maine campus in Orono.

Portland-based artist Aaron Stephan works in the realms between sculpture, installation, performance and philosophy.   Stephan seeks to explore philosophy through object instead of language.  He asks what is our relationship to the world and language, not just language itself.  Stephan is a conceptual artist who works from ideas to find materials that best suit that idea.  Stephan earned his BFA in Sculpture from SUNY Purchase College and his MFA from Maine College of Art.  His work has been shown in solo museum exhibitions, galleries, and commissions.

This event is sponsored by the Intermedia MFA Program and the University of Maine Cultural Affairs / Distinguished Lecture Series.
