Event Image Exhibition | Jim Riswold: Undignified | June 2 - Aug. 26
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

Jim Riswold (American, born 1957) is a highly regarded Portland, Oregon photographer and former creative director at Wieden+Kennedy in Portland. Born and raised in Seattle, Riswold studied at the University of Washington, where he received BA degrees in communications, philosophy, and history. In 1984 he joined the advertising firm of Wieden+Kennedy in Portland, and during his 20 plus years there, was responsible for legendary advertising campaigns for Nike featuring Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Bo Jackson, and Tiger Woods, among others.

In 2000 Riswold was diagnosed with leukemia, and after surviving the disease for five years, left Wieden+Kennedy to become a full-time artist, creating staged photographs and other mixed media works that poke fun at taboo figures such as Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Mao Zedong, General George Custer, Vladimir Lenin, and Kim Jong Un, among others. Over the past decade, Riswold has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the region and his photographs can be found in the collections of the Tacoma Art Museum, Portland Art Museum, and the Hallie Ford Museum of Art, among many others.

Event Image Exhibition | Robert Bibler: Works on Paper | May 12 – July 15
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

*WU Campus - Hallie Ford Museum of Art

For more than 40 years, Robert Bibler (American, born 1948) has combined a fascination with cinematic storytelling, classic film, and Renaissance art to create a beautifully rendered and thoughtful body of work. A master draftsman, Bibler embraces figurative representation and symbolism in surreal, narrative works that distort space and time. This exhibition of Bibler’s work has been organized by Collection Curator Jonathan Bucci, and features drawings and mixed media works on paper created between 1974 and 2017.

Bibler lives in Salem, Oregon, and taught studio art and film studies at Chemeketa Community College for 30 years, retiring in 2003. He also helped bring classic and contemporary films to Salem for 40 years as Coordinator of the Wednesday Evening Film Series. Bibler has exhibited extensively in the Pacific Northwest and his work is included in public and private collections throughout the region, including the Hallie Ford Museum of Art. He earned his BFA degree from the University of Washington and his MFA degree from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
