Annual lecture brings Indiana University faculty member

Jack DavisThe College of Visual Arts and Design’s Sixth Annual D. Jack Davis Endowed Lecture, honoring the former dean, left, brings an internationally recognized art educator to campus. 

Enid Zimmerman, professor emerita of art education and coordinator of the Gifted and Talented Education program at Indiana University’s School of Education, will speak at 6 p.m. April 15 in Art Building, Room 223. Her talk will address “Being a Creative Art Teacher and Teaching Creatively.”

Zimmerman’s research focuses on art education, especially intercultural and global areas, art talent development and creativity, art teacher education, feminist pedagogy, leadership and mentoring and curriculum and policy issues. 

Zimmerman has taught or conducted workshops in 25 countries and has written or co-written more than 130 articles, 20 book chapters and 25 books or monographs

She has been a consultant to the Hong Kong and Korean departments of education about developing programs for talented art students.

An at-large member of the National Art Education Association’s Research Commission, Zimmerman has been named Higher Education Art Educator of the Year and National Art Educator.

Her recent book, co-written with Gilbert Clark, Teaching Talented Art Students: Principles and Practices, has been translated into Korean and Chinese.

The lecture series was named in honor of Davis, who was dean of the College of Visual Arts and Design from 1993 to 2004, after serving as UNT’s vice provost and as a department chair and faculty member.

CVAD’s advisory board, under the leadership of renowned arts patron Raymond Nasher, created an endowed lecture series in Davis’s honor. Each year, the art education faculty members select an internationally known speaker for the lecture.
