Valdes Miami University Exhibition in Oxford, Ohio

I was honored to be invited by Dr. Stephanie Danker and Miami University to come to Ohio as a Visiting Artist. This included a solo exhibition and 3 action packed days of talking to students, conducting a workshop, and presenting an artist talk. Everyone was super nice and Miami has a beautiful campus. I've post some more images in my exhibition section. Thanks again to all the great people of Miami.

 Dr. Danker conducted several of her classes in the gallery so I could talk to students about my work. Students gave really innovative ways they could use my creative process in art education.

 The students made me feel really comfortable and asked lots of great questions. Several of them won Secret Species swag designed for the exhibition.
