Join us Feb. 9th for our Lunchtime Lecture with ILP alum Sara Barnes. Sara Barnes is a Baltimore-based writer, curator, and illustrator specializing in art, illustration, and crafts. She's a staff writer and editor for My Modern Met, website focusing on art and culture. Her work has also appeared in Computer Arts Magazine, Uppercase Magazine, eBay, and Embroidery Magazine—among others. In 2016, she curated an illustration show at the Flower Pepper Gallery in Los Angeles, California titled Inside / Outside.  

Sara has her MFA in Illustration Practice (2013) and is obsessed with finding the latest and greatest in the field, which she shares through her blog, Brown Paper Bag. The illustration-centric website celebrates the field in its many, ever-changing forms.

In 2017, Sara embarked on 1 Year of Stitches, a daily project in which she makes at least one embroidery stitch for every day of the year. After sharing it on her blog, she’s now completing it with thousands of others across the world.

This lecture is sponsored by the Illustration Practice department.
