Art Lectures with Dr. Conrad: Marisol Escobar/ George Segal
Marisol Escobar (May 22, 1930 – April 30, 2016) For Oct. 26
George Segal (November 26, 1924 – June 9, 2000)
This lecture will focus on two artists who use the human form as a basis for their sculpture. George Segal created life-size plaster casts of people, often undecorated from the original white plaster material. Marisol (Escobar) created abstract figures using traditional materials such as wood. Her figures often maintain a geometric form, creating a symbolic resonance in their presentation.
Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.
This event is free to the public.
Join us for coffee and donuts!
