West Shore Community College humankind series is delighted to present visual artist Philip Hartigan. Philip will be giving an artist talk on Tuesday, September 29th at 7pm, online. A link will be provided soon. Originally from Great Britain, now based in Chicago, Philip has ties to Northern Michigan through his teaching at Interlochen Center for the Arts. His art explores half-remembered moments from a childhood in an English mining town where his grandfather was a coal miner. To learn more about Philip – visit his website, read his blog, or follow him on instagram.
