October 24, 2005
St. Louis, MO

Meramec College in St. Louis
presents a:
Bodycast Demonstration
With artist Philip Hitchcock

Monday, October 24, 2005 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM in room HE131.
Also included is a video and slide presentation by the artist.
Free admission!

In this wild and fun workshop, internationally known artist Philip Hitchcock will cover the history and basics of lifecasting and demonstrate his amazing techniques using a live model.

The artist will apply alginate, a gooey, dental impression material, to his bare fleshed model to create a negative mold. Later the mold is filled with gypsum, a cement like mixture, to create the positive casting.

The public demonstration kicks off a week of classes led by Hitchcock wherein sculpture students will learn the basics of casting from life.


Hitchcock was the recipient of the Broadcast Design Award for his work on MGM/UA Television's "The Outer Limits." The WWF (World Wrestling Federation) has retained his services to creates bodycast sculptures of its wrestling "superstars" the "Wrestlemania" Fan access show held at Toronto's Skydome. FOX TV commissioned Hitchcock to create over 20 full bodysculptures for its hit show THE SWAN. Hitchcock's work can be seen on "The Bold & the Beautiful" (CBS), and appears in such films as "Soap Dish," "Femme Fatale,” "Nemesis," and “The Big Tease.” He has been featured on Playboy Television's Sexcetera, E! Entertainment Television, Extra!, TV Guide Television in Canada, and Liebe Sunde on Germany's Pro Sieben network.

THE LOUVRE
“I know my little ‘dirty drawings’ are never going to hang in the main salons of the Louvre, but it would be nice if — I would like to say ‘when,’ but I better say ‘if’ — our world learns to accept all the different ways of loving. Then maybe I could have a place in one of the smaller side rooms.” (1991)
