Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Educator: Staff Educator
Type: Afternoon Salon

Inspired by timeless and limitless elements of the Southern California environment—light, air and sea—artists such as John McCracken, Larry Bell and Robert Irwin broke boundaries by expressing their conceptual concerns with perception, reflection, light and illusion through new materials and techniques. Discuss how these and other So Cal artists expanded the definition of sculpture.
