After creating work for people and companies such as Mos Def, Lady Sovereign, Nike and Converse, Chicago-based artist Cody Hudson is collaborating with the Louisville Graphic Design Association (LGDA) to lecture on his 15 years of work running a design studio. Hudson will speak about the intersections of art and design during his career, using print and video work to convey his message. “He is such a multidimensional artist recognized for his simplistic and aesthetically clean designs,” says Amber Glisson, president of the LGDA. “I love that he has found success in doing something that seems so personally expressive and evocative.” In addition to being an artist, Hudson is also an author (2008’s “Save My Life”) and both founder and creative director of Chicago design firm Struggle Inc. A signed print will be given away at the presentation, so count this as a chance to add to your art collection. —Brandi Terry
