Professor designs park permit
Tuesday, January 1, 2008
Professor of Art Bill Gorcica was chosen to design the 2009 Minnesota State Parks Annual Vehicle Permit, now on sale. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, which awarded the project to Gorcica, expects approximately 300,000 vehicles will carry the permit in a year’s time.
The four-color permit features Mille Lacs Kathio State Park.
Gorcica, who has taught multimedia art and graphic design at St. Cloud State since 1996, also has directed the university’s Kiehle Gallery, received a Bush Foundation Visual Artist Fellowship in Three-dimensional Art, and won a Fulbright Scholarship in painting and graphic arts that was used for a 10-month residency in Krakow, Poland. The artist now creates interactive art kiosks and Web projects. Find a portfolio of his artwork at www.billgorcica.com.
