You are invited to a free public lecture by Elmar Heimbach, visiting 
artist from Aachen, Germany

at The Bison Building
MFA in Applied Craft and Design Studios
421 NE 10th Ave Portland, OR, 97232

Multidisciplinary artist and designer Elmar Heimbach brings his 
inspirations to an MFA in Applied Craft and Design lecture as part of 
the 2011-2012 Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series.

When asked what inspires him, Elmar Heimbach says, “Everything.” For 
instance: the phenomena of perception, the psychology of creativity, the 
renaissance of materials since the ’80s, even seemingly unnoticed 
everyday things we take for granted, like language, light, growth, 
patterns, mechanics. Elmar materializes his concepts and ideas with 
furniture, woodwork, metal work, printing, photography, graphics, 
drawing and architecture. He recently transformed a politically 
desanctified church ruin in Wollseifen, Germany into a space for silence 
and peace.
