Graphic Designer and Guest Artist David Morhaim to Lecture at SCC April 24

April 18, 2012

St. Charles Community College will host guest artist David Morhaim, a graphic designer, artist and illustrator in New York City, on Tuesday, April 24. He will lecture on his art and career beginning at 10:30 a.m. in the auditorium of the Social Sciences Building. This event is free and open to the public.

Morhaim is currently the new business production manager and creative studio supervisor at Ogilvy and Mather, an advertising firm in New York City, where he’s worked for more than 20 years.

“This lecture will be an enlightening experience for students interested in art,” said Brian Smith, SCC professor of art and coordinator of the event. “David has so much professional experience – students in the Midwest don’t get a chance to meet and talk to people like him very often.”

Smith went to school with Morhaim at Boston University, and they’ve remained in touch ever since. In 2003, Morhaim gave Smith and the SCC Art Club a tour of Ogilvy and Mather on their trip to New York City.

Morhaim also does freelance graphic design work and children’s book writing and illustrating. He is a self-proclaimed illustrator, photographer, muralist, graphic designer and writer. Morhaim graduated from The School of Visual Arts in New York City with a fine arts degree.
