Eclectic artist and graphic designer Miggs Burroughs will show his new experiments with lenticular imagery along with conventional photography in an exhibit in the Westport Public Library’s Great Hall throughout January.

Included in the exhibit will be an exclusive preview of some of the images from “The Art of the Birdhouse—Portraits of Artists and Their Creations,” a new, full-color coffee-table book by Project Return that’s to be published in the spring.

An opening reception will be held on Jan. 6 at 6-7 p.m. Entrance to the reception is through the upper level.

Burroughs’ current experimentation with lenticular imagery involves merging two photographic images into one panel in a way that viewers moving past the work see each of the images separately, and the images appear to change back and forth with viewers’ movements.

A lifelong-Westporter and graduate of Carnegie-Mellon University, Burroughs gained recognition for his art and graphic design in his 20s.

The highlights of his long, varied career include being chosen at age 26 to design a commemorative U.S. postage stamp, illustrating several covers for Time Magazine shortly thereafter and being asked to hand-paint an Easter egg for President Ronald Reagan.

He has been an award-winning print and Web site designer, professor of design at Fairfield University and the University of Connecticut, and host and producer of “MIGGS B ON TV,” a Cablevision program on the air since 1984.

He continues to exhibit widely and recently won best in show in the 25th annual juried photography exhibit at the New Canaan Society for the Arts and the Pulmonary prize in the 2005 Art of the Northeast Exhibit.

The program is free and open to the public. For further information, call (203)291-4840 or visit www.westportlibrary.org.
