Benvenuto Cellini: Between Fact and Fiction

In this Issue of Blending Magazine, we explore the theme for the Fall 2022 student exhibit that is inspired by the autobiography of the Renaissance artist and goldsmith, Benvenuto Cellini. Some highlights of this issue include: “Fashion Photography: Real or AI-Generated?” by Katya Fredericksen, which explores the new frontiers of technology and simulation in fashion, and “What’s in a self-portrait?” where the students of Advance Painting courses explore the variety found in a self-portrait. Many more articles, illustrations, and comic strips await you in these pages. We hope you will enjoy reading this issue just as much as we enjoyed putting it together!
