FACULTY FOR KNOWING:

life, according to Prof. Carlos Lo-

noted painter.<
Prof. Lopez, who spends 18
hours a week at/, the University
teaching classes in water color x
and oil painting, devotes the rest:
of the time to painting."
"A regular routine would bore0
me to death," he confessed. "Most f
people come home at night and
relax with the evening paper-I :
vait.' '

OFTEN CALLED a Cuban pain-
ter, Prof. Lopez, born in 1908, only
spent the first year of his life in
that country.
"I am Cuban by birth, Spanish
Iy Ynhritance and American by
choice," he explained.
After spending part of his child-
hood in Spain, Prof. Lopez came to
the United States where :ie has
since resided.
"WHEN I ENTERED the Chi-
cago Art Institute at 18 I thought
I was hot stuff, but the older I get
the less I think I know."
After studying at Chicago he
entered the Detroit Art Academy,
later teaching there and at the
Meinzinger Art School.
During the war Prof. Lopez
was assigned to an army pro-
ject to make drawings and pho-
tographs of U.S. industry at war
and later a pictorial record of
the war. But he was quite dis-
appointed with the project for it
gave little opportunity for cre-
ative work.
"You might call my painting ex-
pressionism, for I draw what I
feel at the moment, but I do not
belong to any one school," he ex-
plained. "I have never been pre-
occupied with superficial external
aspects of a subject but rather
with the spiritual.
* * *
FOR PROF. LOPEZ drawing is
the easiest form of expression. Ev-
en in writing a word he explained,

AT COLUMBUS, five students
were roused from their sleep early
in the morning when fire broke
out in their rooming house, the
Ohio State Lantern reported.
Harvard, too, was worried.
students living above the ground
floor in non-fire proof dormi-
tories were required to report
to the Indoor Athletic Building
for practice in the use of fire
ropes.
But most students appeared to
be more upset about the immedi-
ate danger - exams. The dreaded

NOTED ARTIST-Prof. Carlos Lopez of the School of Design
poses before one of his favorite paintings "The Daring Young
Man" in his Ann Arbor home. Though his work does not belong
to any one school, Prof. Lopez's paintings have been called
expressionist.

pulled" to give emphasis through

In 1945 the noted artist cam? to
the University as an assistant pro-
fessor.

torie, academic approach to the
actual mechanics of drawing, he
noted.
"Art cannot be taught, but
rchool can and should provide the
proper facilities for artistic de-
velopment."
CONDEMNING A rigid schedule
he commented, "Artistic accom-
plishment can't be turned on at
five and off at six."
Students, he felt, should be giv-
en credit not for the number of
hours they put in, but for the work
they turn out.
PROF. LOPEZ met his wife, a
ceramist, while they were in art
school. Lately they have been
working as a team-Mrs. Lopez
makes the pottery and her hus-
band decorates it.
The basement of their home is
a combination art studio and
pottery workshop, complete with
a special kiln.
We've been having a grand time
working together and experiment-
ing with unusual decorative ma-
terials such as uranium and iron.
Mrs. Lopez said.
Among the exhibitions where
Prof. Lopez' paintings are repre-
sented are those of the Detroit Art
Institute, Whitney Museum of
American Art and the Standard
Oil Co. Collection.
MOST OF THE LOCAL art cri-
tics, he said, review painting as
they would a murder. They just
report without giving any opin-
ion.
One critic, though, called my
painting frightening. All I can sal
is that it is no more frightening
than any of todays newspapers."
Tavern Owners
Called to HearingS
Two local tavern proprietors
have been cited by the Ann Arbor
Police Department to a Detroit
hearing for violations of the State
Liquor Law.
Fritz Metzger, owner of a W.
Washington establishment and
Karolina Kahn, who runs a tav-
ern on W. Liberty, will be heard
Jan. 24 at the Cadillac Square
Building. They have been charged
with serving minors.
