Waubonsee Visiting Artist Offers Lecture to the Public

Danielle Dobies, a Fox Valley-based artist currently exhibiting her work at Waubonsee Community College, will offer a lecture on April 18 that is free and open to the public. The lecture takes place from 11 a.m. to noon in Von Ohlen Hall, Room 201 at the Sugar Grove Campus, Route 47 at Waubonsee Drive.

She has worked as an art instructor for the Fox Valley Jewish School, as a project director for local public mural projects and an artist in residence at Water Street Studios.
