IU fine arts professor earns spot in Olympics art exhibition

Sports isn’t the only way Indiana University will be represented at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Fine arts professor Edward Bernstein will travel to London in early August to see his print, “Illuminata,” on display at the Barbican Centre as part of an international exhibition in honor of the games.


Check out his website for more examples of his excellent work. My personal favorite? “Belo Horizonte Vertical.”

“I am lucky they chose my piece,” Bernstein said of the competitive exhibition, citing his belief that a former graduate student who studied printmaking at IU and continues to be very active in China suggested his name for inclusion in the exhibition. “It’s a huge honor to have my work displayed at such an international event.”

Bernstein is professor of art and head of printmaking at IU’s Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Arts, which is part of the university’s College of Arts and Sciences.
