The Life and Art of Shepard Fairey/Margaret Kilgallen/Barry McGee with Christian Conrad

Shepard Fairey /Margaret Kilgallen / Barry McGee

Emerging in the early 1990s were three artists who found their roots in the graffiti scene that was developing in the United States. Shepard Fairey, whose most famous piece remains the Barack Obama "Hope" poster, utilizes his understanding of graphics to create poster-like art that conveys a political message. Margret Kilgallen had a tragic short life, but her work continues to endure and influence. Kilgallen, along with her husband Barry McGe,e worked in the San Francisco area and became cornerstones of the Bay Area Mission School of Art, creating work that blends aspects of street art with concepts of installation. McGee continues to work into the present day, creating art that is shown internationally.

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.

OneBook LBK: People and the Plains

People and the Plains: A Discussion with Deborah Bigness of Lubbock Lake Landmark

For thousands of years, across hundreds of generations, people have inhabited the Southern High Plains or Llano Estacado. They have witnessed the great herds of mammoth and bison in the landscape, traveled its great distances, and survived and thrived on the seemingly limitless prairie. Cultures grew and flourished only to be replaced by newer cultures that flourished in their own times. And always, the grasslands remained – shaping the people who lived on them.

The Life and Art of Ai Weiwei with Christian Conrad

One of the world’s leading contemporary artists is Ai Weiwei, a Chinese artist based in Germany who creates art that ranges from installation to being a consultant of the Beijing National stadium for the Olympics. A working documentary filmmaker in addition to creating art, much of Weiwei’s work is politically based and protests human rights violations. Arrested for a period in his native China, Weiwei was released but continued to be censored by the Chinese government. Ai Weiwei’s sculpture and installations have received international acclaim as he continues to win awards for both his art and also his efforts to draw awareness to global issues.

The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas
WRITERS: Larry L. King Peter Masterson Carol Hall

Directed by Pam Brown

Performed at LHUCA Firehouse Theatre
511 Ave. K
Lubbock, TX 79401

Musical Comedy

The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, a rollicking hootenanny of a musical, is based on the true story of a legendary Texas brothel, which operated from the 1840s to 1973. Protected by a friendly sheriff and frequented by politicians, football teams, and others, the “Chicken Ranch” thrived in the small town of Gilbert, Texas. Girls came from all over to work at the ranch and make a little extra cash. However, a crusading do-gooder Houston radio commentator and his conservative audience expose the Chicken Ranch, forcing it to shut its doors forever.

The Blurring of Art and Life, A Lecture on Bruce Nauman and Takashi Murakami

For some contemporary artists, the complexities and enjoyments of everyday life are a significant focus of their work.One of the more controversial contemporary artists, Bruce Nauman creates art in a variety of materials, ranging from video installations to neon signs. Nauman’s work often focuses on simple ideas or human actions that, through examination, reveal something about the human condition. Takashi Murakami, who was recently featured at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, creates art out of cartoon images and everyday kitsch objects. Murakami also creates in a variety of materials that range from large scale painting installations to his most recent venture: a feature film, Jellyfish Eyes.

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.

The Life and Art of Robert Gober and Duane Hanson with Christian Conrad

Duane Hanson and Robert Gober are two highly acclaimed American artists who both use the concept of realism as points of focus in their sculpture. Duane Hanson created sculptures so realistic that they have often been mistaken for real people. Often featuring as models individuals who are off the beaten path, Hanson has created sculptures of tourists, museum guards, and custodians. Robert Gober uses objects familiar to the viewer to create surrealistic installations. Using objects such as sinks and human forms, Gober creates a slight twist in each object through its location or appearance. Join us as we examine the lives of these two eclectic artists.
