Renowned sculptor James Seawright, a professor of visual arts in Princeton's Lewis Center for the Arts, will discuss his work at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 14, in the Stewart Film Theater, 185 Nassau St.
Seawright began teaching at Princeton in 1969 and directed the Program in Visual Arts from 1975 to 2001. Recognized as a foremost technological artist since the late 1960s, his works are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum and the Guggenheim Museum of New York, the Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University, the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton and other museums throughout the world. His sculpture is known for its kinetic quality, often powered by electronic devices or natural forces such as sunlight.
The event is sponsored by the Lewis Center and the /@arts lecture series.
