Often the profession of fine art extends from one generation to the next, with the children of famous artists themselves following in their parent’s footsteps. Tony Smith’s art pioneered ideas of minimalism in sculpture, and his work has been credited as a key understanding in the viewing of objects in space. Kiki Smith, Tony’s daughter, continues this idea of sculpture, but creates from a radically different perspective than her father, blending aspects of surrealism directed through her personal experience. Join us as we examine the work of both artists view their art through a generational context.

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.
Join us for coffee and donuts.
