Maggie Covert LeBlanc: Illustrator at WalkingMan Studios

Time: 5:30 pm to 7 pm

Contact: Daniela Marx · dmarx@loyno.edu · (504) 865-2112

Location: Nunemaker Auditorium, 3rd Floor, Monroe Hall

 Maggie Covert LeBlanc received her Bachelor’s degree from Maryland Institute College of Art in Interdisciplinary Sculpture with a Concentration in Book Arts. She was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. Her home has made a huge impact on her art, as the culture, vitality, and architecture are hard to escape. Since Hurricane Katrina, Maggie has been exploring the ideas of losing the contributing factors that make a place home. She has been drawn to the repetitive nature of disastrous events along with the governmental, social, and geographic reactions to these. Her most recent work channels the whimsical nature of New Orleans’ architecture and characters. In addition, Maggie has begun a series of "Walking Illustrations". Each walking piece is meant to provoke a feeling of movement (physical, emotional, spiritual, mental)- growth in one's life and development.
