Artist Lecture Series 2 (Tim Musso)
The MFA Program in the Art Department is presenting an Artist Lecture Series. We are inviting six artists throughout the Spring 2021 Semester. This is the 2nd one of the series. For the list of all the six talks, visit here (Artist Lecture Series).
Musso grew up in the wild foothills of the Motherlode, just 20 miles from where gold was first discovered in California in 1848. Musso’s childhood was filled with exploring the forests, rivers, and mountains of the Northern Sierra Nevada. He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and Master of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design and Printmaking respectively at California State University, Long Beach. While Musso enjoys living in the urban environment of Southern California he finds it important to ‘run to the hills’ for extended periods of time. In the wilderness he hikes (~4,000 miles to date), sketches, photographs, and creates rubbings of natural objects. This extensive documentation of the natural world then becomes the reference material for his intricately detailed prints and drawings. In addition to creating art, Musso is a professor in the Art + Design department at La Sierra University in Riverside, California, and is the Director of the Brandstater Art Gallery. Musso exhibits his work internationally with works in both museums and private collections.
