Local artist to discuss first book
Published 4:46 pm, Thursday, November 29, 2012
Westport Public Library will hold a talk by Westport graphic artist and photographer Miggs Burroughs on his first book, "What If?" at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 10, in the library's McManus Room, 20 Jesup Road.
The book explores universal questions that arose during the counseling he undertook after his divorce nearly 20 years ago, according to a release.
A lifelong Westport resident, Burroughs has created art and graphic design since he was 20, when his first painting was accepted into Silvermine Art Center's "Art of the Northeast" show. At 26, he was chosen to design a commemorative U.S. postage stamp. Shortly thereafter, he illustrated several covers for Time Magazine, the release states.
Burroughs has designed hundreds of logos, websites, and print material. He graduated with a degree in fine arts from Carnegie-Mellon University and teaches graphic design at Fairfield University and the University of Connecticut.
The talk is free, and books will be available for purchase and signing. For information, phone 203-291-4800 or check westportlibrary.org.
