MSU assistant professor of Advertising and Public Relations Henry Brimmer has gained some notoriety for his entries in the Grand Rapids ArtPrize. Brimmer was an ArtPrize finalist last year for a work called “There’s Something Happening Here”, made up of silhouettes on the roofs of downtown buildings. It later came to Old Town Lansing for a while. An exhibition of his works is opening today at the MSU Nisbet Building.

Visitors will see Brimmer works dating back to the early 80’s. At the time, he was teaching graphic design at the San Francisco Academy of Art. He and another instructor started a magazine called “Photo Metro”, which published works by famous photographers and students alike.

Current State’s Scott Pohl stopped by yesterday while Brimmer was putting the finishing touches on “More or Less”.
