The University of Indianapolis Art & Design Lecture Series presents Brian Bundren
5 p.m., Monday, November 22, 2021
In Person (UIndy Hall A) & Virtual event
Brian Bundren earned his M.F.A. from the University of Memphis in 2012 and has held a full-time faculty position at Freed-Hardeman University (FHU) since 2008. Bundren teaches Painting I – IV, Drawing I – II, Renaissance Art History and supervises the Senior Practicum capstone project for studio art majors. He also supervises the installation of exhibitions at FHU’s Troy Plunk Art Gallery and assists with coordinating exhibitions. Currently, he is represented by Circuitous Succession Gallery in Memphis, TN.
In 2014, Bundren published his first instructional book through iBooks and Apple©. “Drawing 101: An Introduction to Basic Fundamentals” is a digital textbook complete with photos and videos that demonstrate basic drawing concepts through a variety of exercises. The tutorials provided will help beginners to know where to start and aid serious art students in building their portfolios.
In 2015, Bundren developed and became the Program Coordinator for FHU’s new Bachelor of Fine Arts program. This degree has put the fine arts program at FHU on par with national undergraduate standards and sets the university apart from other private, Church of Christ-based campuses by being one of only two universities east of the Mississippi River to offer this option for fine art studio majors.
