Bruce Helander presenting: Chihuly “An Artist Collects”
Lecture with Q&A

Saturday, February 17
2 to 3 pm

A special event hosted in The Hilton Theater at CCE

Free to the Public!

 

 

 

Dale Chihuly (b. 1941), one of the most inno­vative and iconic figures in contemporary art, is also an avid collector of everything from ceramic dogs to inkwells, vintage Christmas orna­ments, dollhouse furniture, plastic radios—you name it, Chihuly collects it. These everyday objects reflect the same playful, colorful aesthetic that can be seen in Dale Chihuly’s sculptures and installations.

Fully illustrated, Chihuly: An Artist Collects includes an essay by Chihuly’s longtime friend, artist Bruce Helander, who considers why people collect and explores the collections of artists such as Damien Hirst, Peter Blake, Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso—and of course, Dale Chihuly.

City Link magazine called Bruce Helander “Arguably the most recognized and successful collage artist in the country…” and Kenworth Moffett, the former director of the Museum of Art, Fort Lauderdale, said in Gold Coast magazine that “If there was a Pulitzer Prize for collage, Helander would surely win it.” Helander has a master’s degree in painting from the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design, where he later became the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs of the college. He is a former White House fellow of the National Endowment for the Arts and has won the South Florida Cultural Consortium fellowship for professional achievement in the visual arts.

Helander’s work is in over fifty museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Brooklyn Museum, Smithsonian, Art Institute of Chicago, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art and Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles. The artist and his work has been the subject of 100 reviews and articles in numerous publications, including Art in America, ARTnews, and The Washington Post.   (brucehelander.com)

The ATC movement developed out of the Mail Art movement and had its origins in Switzerland. People across the continents are sharing and trading their art in this form. ATCs make art accessible to those who appreciate art but may not be able to afford it. The act of creating and swapping artist trading cards is an exciting way to share your art, connect with other artist and collect art.
