The series’ organizer Terri Thornton, the Modern Art Musuem of Fort Worth’s Curator of Education, says this of the New York and Kansas City-based artists: “You may or may not be familiar with Janet Zweig’s work or that of Dan Maginn but what they have to offer in the realm of ‘public art’ defies the stereotypes that can give the noble effort of making art available in public spaces a bad name. Work like Zweig and Maginn’s stands to change attitudes and communities as it appropriately challenges us in order to include us.”
This season lasts until April 21 (Laurie Simmons that night!). The lectures are free and open to the public (seats are first come first serve) and usually begin at 7 p.m. and end around 8 p.m. For the full season program, please go here. Remember: tomorrow evening is the first installment.
