Please join MAG in a riveting evening with metalsmith and sculptor Ira Sherman as he presents his lecture: MONUMENTAL SCULPTURE DESIGN FROM A
Ira Sherman is one of the few artist today working in four very diverse metalsmithing disciplines. He is a professional award winning goldsmith, liturgical art designer, designer and fabricator of mechanized sculpture and prosthetic devices, and designer and fabricator of monumental sculpture. Each of these disciplines use very different approaches to how the work is designed and marketed, yet all have similar aesthetic relationships. Sherman will go through a brief history of his works using slides and video and explain how each metalsmithing discipline is related through design, yet built on very different scale.
The lecture will be held Thursday, May 14, at 7pm in building C, room 205, at the Fort Mason Center. The lecture will be free for MAG members, non-members will be asked to pay five dollars.
Mr. Sherman is visiting the Bay Area after presenting a fold-forming workshop at the Mendocino Art Center in Mendocino, CA. The workshop will be held May 8-10.
The Fort Mason Center is wheelchair accessible and has ample parking for a nominal fee. It is also accessible by MUNI buses.
