Richard D. Hull
During the fall of 2005 Hull was approached by GayLynn Pettersen Ribeira, an illustration student who wanted to complete her final project by traveling to Ghana. Hull consented to supervise the trip and, in the spring of 2006, he accompanied Ribeira and her classmates Jesse Bushnell, Emmalee R. Glauser, and Angela Nelson to Ghana.
Paintings inspired by the trip were displayed in the B.F. Larsen Gallery during fall 2007, and the artists were invited to discuss their work as part of BYU Women's Conference 2008. In 2011 Hull spoke at the August 2011 convocation. His speech was entitled A Beginning.
In 2011 Hull was a director of the Capitol Reef Project funded by the Laycock Center for Creative Collaboration in the Arts. Hull also collaborated with Jason Lanegan and James Swensen to incorporate all facets of the Visual Arts Department. The project included students from all disciplines of Visual Arts and concluded with an exhibit, A Private Experience in a Public Space, at BYU and also at Snow College. Hull gave the convocation remarks at the August 2011 College of Fine Arts and Communication convocation.
Hull received a first place award at the Illustration Utah Exhibit and Competition for his piece Dinner Mice in 2010.
