The first installment in University Liggett School’s annual “Visiting Artist” series features the artwork of Ed Meese in a collection titled “edmeese/atmostpheres.” The exhibit runs through Friday, Sept. 27, in the Manoogian Arts wing, and is open to the public during school hours.

Meese has a bachelor of fine arts degree from Wayne State University and has been a working artist for decades, with a studio based in the Midtown area in Detroit. At first a painter, Meese later turned to printmaking, creating a dramatic shift in his work after an accident affected his vision.

An opening reception for Meese’s exhibit is at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13, in the arts wing at Liggett, 1045 Cook Road.

There, attendees have an opportunity to meet Meese and hear him discuss his work. The event is free and open to the public.

It’s the first in a series of exhibits Liggett hosts annually. Each year, the school features the work of well-known artists, as Liggett gallery manager and art teacher Jim Pujdowski believes it’s important students are in contact with art in their daily lives. Such contact, he said, gives them an appreciation of and framework for discussing fine arts.

For more information about the series, contact Pujdowski at (313) 884-4444, ext. 323.
