Alumni Spotlight: Helen Hou '14

Alumni Helen Hou '14 graduated from the Studio Art program and is currently pursuing pharmaceutical studies at the University of California, San Francisco. She was recently featured in a UCSF article which discusses the common ground she has discovered between art and pharmacy.

"To first-year pharmacy student Helen Hou, creating art is a way of connecting to patients, caregivers, and her community. 'It’s not always intuitive to see art and pharmacy combined, but many of the soft skills are similar,' said Hou. 'You have to be very observant, for example, and present information in a way that another person can relate to and understand.' "

Alum Lecture: David Hess

Dartmouth Alum, David Hess '86, will give a lecture about his sculptural work on Thursday, November 13 at the Hood Auditorium. This event is sponsored by the Studio Art Department at Dartmouth College.

DAVID HESS works mostly with found materials. The materials he finds, he refers to as rescued objects; they are loaded with history and cultural narrative. At Dartmouth College, Hess studied with the realist wood sculptor Fumio Yoshimura, whose precision and humor had a profound impact on Hess. Hess’s interests in science, engineering and narrative filmmaking also inform his sculpture. Frequently, he explores a precarious balance of elements poised on the verge of movement. Hess is represented in Baltimore by Goya Contemporary Gallery. His work can be found in numerous private and public collections including the collections of the American Visionary Art Museum, Baltimore Museum of Industry, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Sinai Hospital, Thurgood Marshall Airport, Kaiser-Permanente and the Emerson Corporation.
