Artist and printmaker Andrew Kozlowski will discuss how our histories are shaped by the objects we possess and the ephemerality of our human-made, constructed world.

Celebrating 10 Years of the Live Green! Initiative

Come early to learn more about what Iowa State students are doing to promote sustainability on campus, in our communities, and around the world.
Student organizations will share information and displays prior to the talk, 5:45-6:30pm.


Using images from his own work, Kozlowski encourages audiences to reflect on objects of high and low culture around them, from ancient urns and artifacts of art history to the discarded beer cans and building debris of today.

Kozlowski's exhibit Under (Printed) Construction will be on display at the Design on Main Gallery September 10-20 and features screen- and relief-printed images that have been wheat-pasted to the gallery wall. On Friday, September 21, he will lead a workshop during which the exhibit will be torn down and recycled into new paper on which workshop participants will print their own images.

Located in the Main Street Cultural District in downtown Ames, Design on Main is a satellite studio and gallery facility that connects Iowa State University’s College of Design with the greater Ames community.
