Gowri Savoor is a visual artist working in environmental sculpture and works on paper.  Gowri has worked extensively within community arts and education and has her training in graphic design, which she continues to do on a freelance basis.  Gowri will give a talk about her work on Wednesday, April 28, 2010 - from 5:30-7:00pm in Archer 365A.  Please contact Afshan Bokhari (Asst.Professor, NESAD) at abokhari@suffolk.edu

On April 28 and 29, from 10:00am to 4:00pm, Gowri will construct a "rangoli" in the Donahue Lobby as a symbolic 'consecrattion' of the ground-breaking of the future NESAD building.  All are welcome to help!  Rangoli is one of the most popular art forms in India.  It is a form of sand-painting decoration that uses finely ground colored powders, and is commonly done outdoors to mark auspicious beginnings. 

This event is co-sponsored by the New England School of Art & Design, the Rosenberg Institute for East Asian Studies, and the College of Arts and Sciences Dean's Office.
