Lamar Dodd School of Art Lecture: Donald Lipski

The Lamar Dodd School of Art will host sculptor Donald Lipski as part of the Visiting Artist and Scholar Lecture Series on Tuesday, October 12, at 5:30 p.m. in room S151 of the Dodd’s building on East Campus.

Lipski has exhibited around the world, including at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney and the Art Institute of Chicago. He has also received the Guggenheim Fellowship, the National Endowment for the Arts Award, the American Academy of Arts and Letters Academy Award and the Rome Prize.

Lipski’s work often combines unlikely objects and materials to create something new, such as the trumpet and candle seen above. He says, “I strive to both seduce and challenge the viewer, to provoke wonder and delight…to lead him to question, to make his own metaphors.”

He has also gained popularity and acclaim for his public projects. His work is currently on view in a number of locations including the Miami International Airport, Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, N.C., and the Sacramento Airport.
