With meticulous draftsmanship, Bill Amundson infuses social commentary and satire in portraits and in images of Middle America. He captures the absurdities and eccentricities of life in witty and humorous visual critiques. In works such as Teen Excavation and Nervous Patriot — both in the Denver Art Museum collection — he addresses existential predicaments, from typical teenage angst to grown-up political anxieties. Amundson’s work has been widely exhibited and is in many public and private collections.
All Logan Lectures begin at 7 pm in the Sharp Auditorium at the Denver Art Museum’s Frederic C. Hamilton Building. Doors open at 6:15 pm.
