Step behind the scenes as the installation process for the recent exhibition "Jim Dine: Sculpture and Large Prints" unfolds and Dine describes his inspiration and work.

The exhibition (July 8-Nov. 27), which featured bronze and enamel on wood sculptures, as well as several of the master's signature Pop Art offerings, celebrated the 75th anniversary of the College of Fine Arts.

Born in Cincinnati, Dine took up residence in New York City in 1959, and gained recognition in the art world by pioneering "Happenings," a series of theatrical events mixing art, performance and audience participation.

Wife Diana Michener and studio assistant Jason Treffrey visited Ohio University with Dine during the installation process June 26-29. Dine returned to campus Nov. 3 for a public event, "A Conversation with Jim Dine" at Templeton-Blackburn Memorial Alumni Auditorium.
