September 4 update: The Logan Lecture featuring El Anatsui is now sold out.
A master of materials, Ghanaian-born El Anatsui transforms the discarded and overlooked - from driftwood to bottle tops - into art that tells personal and universal stories. For over forty years, his poignant works have included sculptures, wood trays, ceramics, and the luminous metal wall sculptures that have brought him international acclaim. A favorite in our collection is Rain Has No Father?.
The Denver Art Museum hosts the retrospective, El Anatsui: When I Last Wrote to You about Africa, opening September 9, 2012.
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.
$8 students and DAM volunteers, $12 DAM Contemporaries members and artists, $15 DAM members, $18 non-members
