The Art of Richard Tuttle: A Celebration

Date + Time

Thursday, June 30, 2005
7:00 p.m.

Location

Phyllis Wattis Theater

Overview

For more than 40 years, Richard Tuttle has playfully blurred the boundaries between painting, sculpture, and drawing. His art is characterized by a diverse and unorthodox use of materials that makes for richly complex forms. Tuttle's works, whether installations, book works, or objects, are unique and have been profoundly influential to a younger generation of artists. Join exhibition curator Grynsztejn, art historian Siegel, the artist, and additional guest speakers as we introduce and celebrate Tuttle's singular achievements in contemporary art.
