Briggs will confront the always perplexing issues and never-ending quandaries: what is good art, who says so, and does it have value?

Art Lectures with Dr. Conrad: Larry Rivers and Francesco Clemente

Art Lectures with Dr. Conrad: Larry Rivers and Francesco Clemente

Two artists who received international recognition from their success in New York are Larry Rivers and Francesco Clemente. Larry Rivers (1923–2002), an American-born artist, worked as a musician before embarking on an art career. Rivers’ paintings were instrumental in the establishment of Pop Art, with some of the first uses of everyday objects as the subjects of his work. Francesco Clemente (1952–), an Italian-born artist who works in New York, creates paintings that are figuratively based. Both artists are excellent examples of the art world’s reactions to the formalist ideas of Abstract Expressionism.

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!

Giving Tuesday LBK

Support LHUCA's Firehouse Theatre with Giving Tuesday!

Did you know that LHUCA hosts around 12 theatre productions every year, as well as speaking events, art lectures and other entertainment events? Those events would not be possible without the sound and lighting equipment that is available in our theatre.

The current soundboard is analog and was very high tech when it was installed, but it has seen hundreds of performances and is outdated as theatre companies have moved to digital equipment and the analog board is not compatible.

The money raised this Giving Tuesday will go toward the purchase of a digital soundboard to ensure that quality programming can continue in the Firehouse Theatre.

Please consider donating to help us keep the theatre in tip-top condition and so you can continue enjoying theatre productions and your other favorite LHUCA programming.

Every dollar you give is enhanced with amplification dollars from the Community Foundation of West Texas. Please consider supporting LHUCA today!

Artists Talks with Cande Aguilar and Alejandro Macias

Born and raised in Brownsville, Texas, Cande Aguilar is a self-taught artist who reflects on border culture through his barrioPOP distinctive style. Cande’s large scale paintings combine graffiti art, and street culture to create a unique style of border town pop art.

Alejandro Macias’ work is a mixture of conventional, representational, and abstract techniques that acts as a metaphor for his upbringing in the remote, and culturally rich, Rio Grande Valley.

Join us for an informal conversation in the galleries with both artists. 

This event is free to the public.
We will be serving coffee and donuts for your pleasure.

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. His works draws attention to the idea of place and the activities that occur there through his occupation of spaces with sculptural forms. Widely recognized for his work, Segal was awarded the Medal of the Arts in 1999.

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. Working in the Pop Art scene of the 1960s in New York, Marisol’s work challenged the plastic edge of Pop art with forms that recalled the traditions of sculpture from previous times, while making social commentary about contemporary society.

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.

Art Lectures with Dr. Conrad: Julian Schnabel

Julian Schnabel (born October 26, 1951) for Oct.12
Julian Schnabel is best known for his large-scale paintings that incorporate materials into the canvas surface. Using broken plates, wax, and animal antlers, his compositions often test the limits of what a painting can be. Schnabel was born in New York, but he spent a large portion of his younger life in Brownsville, Texas, and he graduated from the University of Houston. Highly prolific, in addition to his visual art career Schnabel works as a film director making such films as Basquiat (1996) and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (2007).
