Kate Brennan Hall ’85 is showing pieces from her daily practice in her exhibition, Playful Investigations, at Hearst Center for the Arts.

“For 100 consecutive days, I created a new piece of art and posted it on Instagram every day,” Hall told The Courier. "These illustrations reflect my eclectic view of life, the music I listen to, the books I read, portraits of people in my life.”

As a professional illustrator and printmaker, Hall enjoys the challenge of working with deadlines and parameters from clients. But for her to have longevity as a maker, it’s important to keep going back to that feeling from childhood—the act of playing and experimenting without an end goal in sight: just pure exploration.
