Christian Petersen and Memorial Art: A Conversation
June 17 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm CDT
From his early work to his 21-year tenure as the first artist-in-residence at Iowa State University through his retirement years, sculptor Christian Petersen visited the topic of memorial and commemorative art throughout his career.
In conjunction with the exhibition From Time Immemorial: Art as Commemoration in the Neva Petersen Visual Literacy Gallery in Morrill Hall, this conversation with University Museums curators Sydney Marshall and Allison Sheridan will explore how Iowa State’s Art on Campus Collection incorporates public memorial to honor the sacrifice of life and significant contributions by individuals, and showcase narratives of progress with a focus on the artwork of Christian Petersen.
This event will have a limited audience capacity and requires pre-registration. REGISTER TODAY for this free, in-person program in the Morrill Hall Auditorium, room 2019, on central campus.
A recording of the program will be available after the event on the University Museums’ YouTube channel.
