Travel Diaries

Nicky Sczesny

I am excited to announce that I will be showing my work at the Gerald R. Ford Airport. Ten pieces from my Travel Diaries series will be on display in light boxes on level 2 of the parking garage. I must admit that it was a bit intimidating to know that my work was going to be blown up to 60" x 42". That's big. On the plus side, it meant that I am able to share my thoughts on education on a huge platform. After homeschooling I learned that travel is the best teacher. You could learn about U.S. History from a dusty old text book or you can go out explore new cities. Personally, I learned more on vacation than a four hour lecture ever could. 

On that note, I wrapped up this series with a piece dedicated to home: Grand Rapids, MI. Just because I live here doesn't mean I can't take a Segway tour and learn more about my town. Confession: riding a Segway is on my bucket list. 

So next time you're flying through the Grand Rapids airport be sure to check out my work along with many other talented artists from Kendall College of Art and Design.

Art Prize

Nicky Sczesny

Happy Art Prize opening day!  This past summer I have been working on my entry piece for art prize.  From the get-go I knew that I wanted to do a series of three paintings of models on a runway except I didn't know whose designs to illustrate.  I desired drama, elegance and color.  Who's more qualified at designing dramatic gowns than Zac Posen?  Being a sucker for volumious gowns I choose the yellow, orange and red dress from his fall 2013 collection.
