Applied Design: A Kim MacConnel Retrospective
This fall, the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego will present the first full-career retrospective of San Diego-based contemporary artist and UCSD Visual Arts professor emeritus Kim MacConnel, Muir ’69, M.F.A. ’72. The exhibition, titled Collection Applied Design: A Kim MacConnel Retrospective, will showcase the vibrant work of this pioneer of the 1970s Pattern and Decoration movement and highlight his wide-ranging inspirations—from textile arts to found images and
the French artist Henri Matisse.

MacConnel’s former students and the UCSD alumni community are invited to a special lecture and reception with Kim MacConnel at MCASD’s La Jolla location on December 9. For more information, visit alumni.ucsd.edu/events

One-Stop Reunion Tool Kit
Interested in creating your own reunion? Alumni Weekend is a great time for your friends to come back, take a tour of UCSD, visit a favorite professor, tour the new buildings and labs, or your old dorm, grab a beer and a bite to eat at The Pub, or simply reconnect. Contact us at the Alumni Association, tell us what you want your reunion to look like, and we can help you make it a success! For more information, e-mail us at alumnireunions@ucsd.edu.
