Visiting Artist Lecture Series: A Question of Permanence
The series examines our impact on memory, community and society by asking, “what are we leaving behind?” The first speaker for this yearʼs lecture series is sculptor John Frame. In his most recent work he creates haunting and dream-like vignettes using stop motion animation. His casts of characters are small figures he makes from wood, metal and other found objects. These intricately crafted puppets reference a different time and place. His primarily figurative sculptures create emotional and visual connections with rich traditions in art history. He will speak Oct. 10, noon, at Eastern Washington University Art Department auditorium; at 6:30 p.m. at Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, 2316 W. First Ave. in downtown Spokane; and Oct. 11, 11:30 a.m. at Spokane Falls Community College, Building 24 (Sn-w’ey’-mn), Room 110.
