WFU professor to talk about creative thinking
October 18, 2007
David Finn, associate professor of art at Wake Forest University, will discuss ways to jump start creative thinking in a lecture from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 29 in Manchester Hall, Room 121.
During the talk, titled “Hitting a Fuzzy Target in Moonlight,” Finn will address whether creativity can be taught and whether it can be conjured “on demand.” He will lead the audience in creativity exercises using “thinking tools” developed by Edward De Bono, a leading authority on creative thinking.
Finn has worked as a sculptor for 20 years, using materials such as newspaper, trash and marble, and his work has been shown in 15 solo exhibitions internationally. He is the recipient of fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, and most recently, the North Carolina Arts Council.
The event is sponsored by the Wake Forest Office of Entrepreneurship and Liberal Arts and is free and open to the public. For more information, call (336) 758-3123.
