Another iPhone photo as we get ready for the summer season. We’re sad to see the exhibition Breathing is Free leaving us, but there’s an audience waiting in Chicago so it’s being prepared for shipping. Our lead preparator, Stephen (noticeably absent for photos!) is working nonstop to change over galleries to the summer exhibitions. This gallery on the second floor is being readied for our summer family exhibition Food: Feast for the Eyes, which will be showing May 16 (that’s next Saturday!) – August 29, 2009.  

As always, our annual Family Fun Day (scheduled for Saturday, July 11!) is themed with the family exhibition, so expect lots of food, nutrition and health activities and fun stuff at this year’s event!

Also- if you haven’t yet seen Kurt Weiser’s exhibition Eden Revisited, this week is your last chance before it too travels to a new destination. The exhibition officially closes next Saturday, May 16, so come by to see some truly amazing ceramic art before it’s on its way!

greetings from Brazil!

FRIDAY CONVERSATIONS @ 11

Please join us this Friday, February 20 at 11am for the FREE talk with Brazilian artist Paulo Nenflidio, on the beginning of his Social Studies initiative residency:

GAMBIARRA

with additional speakers Marcio Botner, director of A Gentil Carioca, Rio de Janeiro, and John Spiak, curator at the ASU Art Museum.

http://asuartmuseum.asu.edu/socialstudies

This week’s conversation is an opportunity to welcome Brazilian artist Paulo Nenflidio as he shares insight into his earlier work and concepts for his community collaborative work during the residency. The conversation will be the first opportunity for personal conversations with the artist to develop collaboration possibilities as the artist begins his six week Social Studies residency in the ASU Art Museum.  

This project is made possible through funding provided by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, F.A.R. (Future Arts Research) @ Arizona State University, and Friends of the ASU Art Museum. In-kind support provided by Comfort Inn of Tempe.

Conversations @ 11 is a free series to explain and discuss current projects happening at the museum. Meet artists, curators, collectors and guests in a relaxed, casual atmosphere while you learn more about art.

And plan to join us later that evening for the FREE Spring Season Kick-off celebration Friday, from 7-9pm!

Joining us at the reception will be Brazilian artist Paulo Nenflidio and ceramic artist Kurt Weiser, we’ll have a dance performance throughout the evening as well as hands-on activities for the kids (and who doesn’t like origami?) All activities, snacks, admission and even parking is free!

*Find free parking: on the NE Corner of Mill Ave and 10th Street there are spaces marked for the museum, and also the big parking lots open to the public at 7pm. Very convenient!

ADMISSION TO THE MUSEUM IS ALWAYS FREE

Keep your money and support the arts at the same time. What a great way to start the weekend!

Eden Revisited at ASU Art Museum

the Ceramic Art of Kurt Weiser

Eden Revisited: the Ceramic Art of Kurt Weiser

I shot this image with my iPhone this morning as I was coming into the museum. I’m really excited to see the full show- Weiser is an important ceramic artist and more so, his work is simply beautiful. The show opens officially on Feb. 14, but the artist will be in attendance at the season opening reception – and signing books!- on Feb. 20, 7-9 pm.

You don’t want to miss this exhibition. I promise you’ll never look at ceramics the same way again.
