Emporia State University, March 2004 (photo by Eric Conrad)
At the end of February, I visited Emporia State at the invitation of my dear friend, Eric Conrad. I first spoke here in 2004 and was happy to return to present the Stalking Artist: In Pursuit of Home series and visit students in a digital photography course. Here are some random images from the visit:

If only I had a story to tell on these rotating chalkboards.
Ever since starting the Art Department series, I am fascinated with taking quick snapshots of other classrooms in the pedagogical environment. Here is one from the Art Ed classroom....
... and jewelry display case.
