Sculptor Bridgette Mongeon speaks on fine art and 3D technology

Sculptor Bridgette Mongeon speaking at Penn State about fine art and digital technology and her new book.

Sculptor Bridgette Mongeon has been on a curious adventure.  She has a new book about 3D Technology in Fine art.  The book has been a number one new release on Amazon. She also has and a new commission of a monumental Sculpture of the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party where she is using many of the processes she writes about in her book.

 

She is coming to California for a book signing at  SIGGRAPH, a computer graphics conference and is seeking a few other venues to share her fascinating topic and book titled “3D Technology in Fine Art and Craft: Exploring 3D Printing, Scanning Sculpting, and Milling.”
 
Ms. Mongeon’s introduces attendees to the wonders of technology in fine art:

* 3D Scanning for digital preservation of art.

* See the work of some of the 80 different artists around the world that Mongeon shares in her book, and hear about their processes.

* Learn about advances in digital technology as it pertains to such things as medicine, engineering, and art.

* Watch how Mongeon creates the monumental scene of the Mad Hatter tea party using 3D scanning, sculpting, milling, and 3D . Learn about some of the inventive ways she is hiding 150 messages in the scene.
 
This lecture is perfect for

* Fine artists interested in learning more about digital processes

* Makers using 3D printing, scanning and milling

* Educators wanting to know more about STEAM education- using Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.
 
Mongeon will be at SIGGRAPH in the Anaheim California area July 24 and 27. She is seeking speaking/ book signing opportunities for the week of the 24th while in the area.

Sculptor Bridgette Mongeon is in love with bringing children’s literature to life.

Sculptor Bridgette Mongeon is completing the sculpting on a monumental sculpture of Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter Tea Party. As a lover of literature, she would be thrilled to find more patrons that could help her to bring to life children’s literature.  “I want to encourage literacy, inspiration, family and community, and wonder through these works. There are many wonderful books in the public domain from which we can choose- The Wizard of Oz, Brothers Grimm, Peter Rabbit just to name a few.” States Mongeon.March Hare with artist 2

AliceandmybookMany of you have been following along with my very busy schedule of creating the monumental sculpture of the Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter Tea Party for Evelyn’s Park in Bellaire, Texas. You may also know that I had a new book that came out last November called 3D Technology In Fine Art and Craft: Exploring 3D Printing, Scanning, Sculpting, and Milling. I’m proud to say it has been a number one new release on Amazon. It seems that from starting the sculpture last July, to the book release in November, it has been a whirlwind of activity in my studio.

You may not know that I have used the same digital technology with the Alice Sculpture as I have written about in the book. It is fascinating, and I can’t wait to write a new book on the process of sculpting Alice.

The whirlwind continues.

I’m thrilled that my publisher, Focal Press is jumping on board. With the new Alice in Wonderland Movie coming out we have an entirely new promotion strategy for the sculpture and the book. I’m thrilled when Focal Press has asked me to come to book signings, be a featured author, etc. This is a great way to start off my first solo book. I have longed for a publisher that could work with me as a team, and Focal Press is doing just that. Thanks to everyone for jumping down the rabbit hole with me.
