7 – 8 pm
The drawings of Jim Woodring have earned him an international reputation as a master draftsperson and creator of engaging mysteries. In conjunction with his solo exhibition The Pig Went Down to the Harbor at Sunrise and Wept, Woodring presents this illustrated lecture offering insights into his practice, influences, and achievements, including the history of the Giant Pen and the theoretical and practical opportunities it presents. This lecture will be followed by a discussion between Woodring and Negarra A. Kudumu, Frye Art Museum Manager of Public Programs.
