Lines of Inquiry


Location: 104 Bond Hall

Brian Kelly '81 will display his traveling exhibition, "Lines of Inquiry," at Bond Hall from August 20-September 21, and will lecture on the exhibition on September 14. "Lines of Inquiry" is an exploration of the discipline of drawing en plein air through a variety of media and techniques. Many of the compositions in the exhibition were executed in conjunction with drawing classes taught in Rome for the University of Maryland School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. 

The 'lines of inquiry' shared by the work displayed in this exhibition focus on a pedagogy of the city and the landscape. Drawing served as the principal tool for extracting, recording, and discerning the lessons of architecture often by contrasting subjective initial impressions against prolonged observation, documentation, and analysis.
