Todd Pavlisko to speak on April 24 as part of the 2017 Visiting Artist Lecture Series

Todd Pavlisko will be here on Monday afternoon, April 24 at 4 p.m. (originally he was scheduled in February, but snow forced cancellation). Come hear this engaged and engaging artist talk about his work in University Hall, 2nd Floor, Room 2110. 

“Pavlisko asks us to “gather around,” not necessarily to join arms and plot our path to rattle change, but rather to step inside a chamber of passions—a cauldron of boiling preoccupations. Through these individual works, which also function collectively as a singular installation, the artist gives us a peek behind the curtain as he steps us through a visual landscape of his own character development while also asking us to find ourselves (or not) within this veritable garden of earthly delights.”

---Kristin Rogers on the exhibition “Now’s the Time”
