Miggs Burroughs’ First Book–Talk at Library
Westport Author and Graphics Artist Miggs Burroughs on His First Book
Monday, Dec 10, 2012 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM
Westporter Miggs Burroughs, a graphic artist and photographer, discusses his first book, What if? In it, he explores some of the universal questions that arose as a part of the counseling he had after his divorce nearly 20 years ago. As Dan Woog says,“It’s a thought-provoking, inspirational work that gets you thinking in random, odd ways. About things you’ve thought of often, and things you never imagined would enter your brain.”
A lifelong resident of Westport, CT, Miggs Burroughs has been creating art and graphic design since he was 20 and his very first painting was accepted into Silvermine’s prestigious Art of the Northeast show. At age 26, he was chosen to design a Commemorative U. S. Postage Stamp. Shortly thereafter he illustrated several covers for TIME Magazine, one of which resides in the Smithsonian Institution. Miggs has designed hundreds of award-winning logos, websites and print material for global companies as well as non-profit organizations. He has recently won acclaim for his work with lenticular imagery, which has been exhibited in several one-man shows and is held in several private collections. Miggs graduated with a degree in Fine Arts from Carnegie-Mellon University and teaches graphic design at Fairfield University and UCONN.
