Artist and illustrator Craig Slaff '78 joins his love of aviation and naval history with his knowledge of heavy equipment and New Jersey wildlife to create works of beauty, power and extraordinary technical and historical accuracy. All Morristown-Beard alumni are invited to join us as Slaff delivers the 2012 Lehman Lecture, "Painting Stories," on Friday, May 18 at 3:30 p.m. in Founders Hall.
As a young man, Craig Slaff ‘78 played semi-pro soccer, worked heavy earth moving machinery and designed and built his own passive solar home, studio and barn on 20 acres of rugged land – land which he cleared himself. (He lives there today with his wife and three children.) Throughout his life Craig has painted, melding his knowledge of aviation and naval history with his deep understanding of the intersection of man, machine and nature. His paintings and prints tell stories to millions of viewers worldwide. Slaff’s works have received numerous awards from prestigious museums.
Established in 1987 by Emily Lehman Smith ’56 and Gail Lehman Harty ’59 in honor of both their architect father and grandfather, the Lehman Lecture has brought speakers on a broad range of arts topics to campus.
