ABOUT BRUCE CAMPBELL
Bruce Campbell has always loved to draw and spent his early years observing and sketching animals in the woods near his home. He graduated from Syracuse University with a BFA in printmaking, and then an MFA from Indiana University in graphic design. In 1980, he started his own company, Bruce Campbell Design, specializing in the design of art museum books and exhibition catalogues. He was named design director for The Library of America in 1981 and in 1983 began designing books for The Metropolitan Museum of Art, where for 30 years he designed many of the exhibition catalogues. His work has won awards in numerous book design shows. He began working in wire in the early 1990’s and thinks of his pieces as three-dimensional line drawings. Fascinated with the mechanics of movement, he began experimenting with kinetic wire sculpture in 2001. His work can be found at galleries in Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island. Bruce teaches occasional workshops in his studio in Brattleboro, VT.
