Alberto Gonzalez Cepedes
December 9-12, 2013
Alberto Gonzalez, a native of Costa Rica and a teacher of English in Costa Rica, will be a visiting scholar and lecturer in the Art Department the week of December 9-12. The students in Mr. Gonzalez’ classes and the students in the Art Education Classes at SCSU have been participating in an art exchange for almost 10 years.
Professor Gainey and Alberto Gonzalez met through an International Teacher Exchange. In addition to teaching English in the k-12 schools of Costa Rica, Alberto is a community organizer for the arts, a leader in environmental projects, a world traveler, and a master of several languages.
Alberto will give several presentations on the schools of Costa Rica and the teaching of English as a Second Language in a Spanish speaking country.

"In The Thick of It"
This lecture was part of Nicholas Brown's week-long residency at the Department of Art at St. Cloud State University to work with a group of students on a year-long curatorial project. The project will culminate in an exhibition at the Gallery Vault in downtown St. Cloud in April 2014. The lecture and residency were both made possible by a generous Action Grant from the Office of the Provost at St. Cloud State University.
