Artist, animator, and graphic designer Geoff McFetridge visited Minneapolis early this week to kick off the Insights Design Lecture Series 2013, but we kept him busy with an array of other projects, the most visible of which was overseeing the installation of his filmstrip-inspired mural commissioned for the construction fence encircling the Walker. He also checked out the galleries, discussed the site fencing for an upcoming video, and gave a presentation on his work to the Walker Collector’s Council. A few snapshots from his visit.
