Michael Goro meets with art majors in the galleryVisiting Artist Michael Goro

Internationally acclaimed printmaker Michael Goro visited the Augustana art department and presented his work in several classes, including an engraving workshop in printmaking. The juxtapositions of urban environments, architectural drawings and images from Old Masters serve as the basis for much of Goro’s imagery, reflecting his roots and upbringing in Soviet Russia. “My art is a continuous creative search for raw authenticity in urban environments and human forms that are constantly changing,” states Goro.
