Sculpture Lecture Series

A look at the artists and works of Phase III of the Sculpture in Civic Center Park Exhibition


Be Still and Know by John Merigian

 

City Arts Commissioner Grace Divine -- art lover, historian and critic -- hosts a 9-part series of lectures on the new Phase III additions to the Sculpture at Civic Center Park Exhibition in Newport Beach. Find out what inspired Craig Gray to create Popsicles. How did David Boyer craft Getting Your Bearings? How did Patricia Vader come up with the idea to use bicycle wheels to construct Cosmic Glints? These, and many other questions will be answered. Each lecture will cover a different sculptor, and will include the artist's history and inspiration, as well as a look into the art style, technique and process used to create the art. We hope to see you there.

Admission is free, and seating is limited.
