Artist Washburn to discuss her work, Oct. 10
Posted October 5, 2006; 12:42 p.m.
Phoebe Washburn, a New York-based sculptor and installation artist known for her unusual use of recycled materials, will speak about her work at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 10, in Room 219 of 185 Nassau St.
Washburn has gained attention in the contemporary art world for large installations made from an eclectic assortment of materials -- cardboard boxes, lumber, plastic cups, old newspapers -- collected from recycling bins, alleys and loading docks. Her work has been featured in solo exhibitions at Rice University, Grinnell College, the Zach Feuer Gallery in New York, and the Kantor/Feuer Gallery and Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, as well as in numerous group exhibitions.
Washburn's talk is sponsored by the Program in Visual Arts.
