Nature, Art, and Camouflage: Duplicitous Uses of Color

Tuesday, July 6, 2021

Hear from emeritus professor of graphic design, Roy Behrens, in this talk about color and its many uses!

The Independence Public Library hosts Roy Behrens, author, artist, and emeritus professor of graphic design and design history, for a virtual presentation on color and camouflage. This talk is an illustrated overview of the duplicitous functions of color in animals, plants, and other natural forms, as well as by people in everyday life. It also discusses why artists, designers, and architects – beginning with WWI – were widely assumed to be experts at “fooling the eye.”
