June 2, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Date: Monday June 2, 2014
Time: 6:30 to 8 PM
Place: Turner Center – Pizer Studio
Both bas-relief and mosaic art have a long standing tradition in human civilizations, dating back nearly 5,000 years. They have been part of the artistic tradition of all major cultures. Many of these works of art are considered to be among the world’s greatest treasures. While the style of expression has changed over time, these art forms are still widely used by contemporary artists.
A power point presentation will review the history of these art forms from the earliest examples to contemporary works. The Turner Center’s Artist-in-Residence, Marty Haythorn’s, will give an overview of his vision for the public art project for the Turner Center as well as the progress on the project will be part of the presentation.
