Artist Lynda Barry Inspires All at UMass Lowell

For the past three days, UMass Lowell’s Center for Arts and Ideas hosted its first visiting artist, Lynda Barry, an award-winning author, comic strip artist, painter, and teacher. She met with students in their classes, gave a talk to a standing-room-only sized audience in O’Leary Library, and taught a workshop about stories and images. She engaged more than 400 students in her brief residency. Learn more about Lynda Barry here, courtesy of her publishing company, Drawn & Quarterly of Canada.
