With financial support from the Hixson-Lied Visiting Artist & Scholar Lecture Series, UNL Clay Club is bringing Kim Dickey and Simon Levin to campus for demonstrations and consecutive public lectures Nov. 7-10. The lectures are free and open to the public.

Kim Dickey, processor of art at the University of Colorado, Boulder, received her MFA from Alfred University. She has had solo shows in New York, Los Angeles, Kansas City, and Denver and has participated in invitationals in Australia, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Korea, Sweden, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Dickey has made permanent installations at MCA Denver, The Lab at Belmar, the Danish Ministry of Culture in Slagelse, Denmark, and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, in Bentonville, AR.

Simon Levin has been working in clay since 1990, when an elective ceramics course in college changed the direction of his life. He is a full time studio potter working exclusively with wood firing. His award-winning work is exhibited internationally, and appears in several contemporary ceramic books. Simon is writer for many ceramic journals, and in 2013 he traveled to Taiwan as a Senior Fulbright scholar researching local materials. As a kiln builder Simon has built wood fired kilns for both U.S. colleges and universities as well as schools in Taiwan and China.

The Hixson-Lied Visiting Artist & Scholar Lecture Series is underwritten by the Hixson-Lied Endowment, with additional support from other sources. The program brings notable artists, scholars and designers to the University of Nebraska; enhancing the education of our students and enriching the culture of the state by providing a way for the public to interact with luminaries in the fields of art, art history and design.
