Mankato, Minn. – The 45th annual Douglas R. Moore Faculty Research Lecture at Minnesota State University, Mankato will feature a presentation by faculty member Brian Frink at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 27 in Ostrander Auditorium, located in Minnesota State Mankato’s Centennial Student Union.

Frink’s presentation, titled “Magical Landscapes: A Discussion of the Creation of a Work of Art,” is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served following the presentation in the Hearth Lounge – Centennial Student Union Art Gallery.

In a preview of his lecture, Frink, an associate professor in the Department of Art in Minnesota State Mankato’s College of Arts and Humanities, wrote:

“I am so very grateful for this opportunity to present my creative research to a broad campus and community audience. I will be presenting the ‘nuts and bolts’ of the creation of one of my paintings from my series of works I call Magical Landscapes. My hope is to demystify the creative process for those in attendance. Perhaps through this demystification we will be able to experience the magic of our world.”
