Dr. Thomas Wang
William Burgard (BFA 1979)
I was hired in 2013 by the University of Michigan Health System's Division of Gastroenterology to render portraits of their leading researchers for an installation on the 2nd floor of the Taubman Medical Center. Dr. Thomas Wang is one of 5 in the series that included images of the tools and data involved in each person's area of specialization. The artwork was installed in the spring of 2014. As with this piece, nearly all of my work involves multiple layers and media.
This work is featured as part of Future Former: An Exhibition of Alumni Work. This exhibition honors the creative work and careers of all Stamps School alumni, creates an aspirational connection between generations of U-M artists and designers and current Stamps students, and inspires reflection during the university's Bicentennial year.
