Ursula was so right on with that line.
Especially when it comes to tonight, when there are two art lectures happening at ASU, at the same time.
First, we've got guest curator Bobby Silverman at the Ceramics Research Center to discuss the current exhibition "Ceramic Design: Manufactured Brilliance and Beauty in Daily Life" during the show's opening reception which runs from 6 to 8 p.m. His lecture about the functional and beautiful aspects of ceramic design begins at 7 p.m.
Meanwhile, across the street at the ASU Art Museum, artist William Wylie will discuss his role in the "Forged Power: Ferran Mendoza, Alvaro Sau & William Wylie" exhibition.
Wylie traveled to Carrara, Italy to observe the everyday working practices of the cavatori (stonecutters) who have worked the quarry for centuries. Heavy machinery blends with human gestures, coordinated movement, precise measurements, and communication to accomplish the task at hand. Wylie presents the action with a series of video installations and will discuss the experience.
At 7 p.m., of course.
Bobby Silverman speaks about "Ceramic Design: Manufactured Brilliance and Beauty in Daily Life" tonight, April 20, at 7 p.m. at the ASU Ceramics Research Center at the northeast corner of 10th Street and Mill Avenue in Tempe. Visit http://asuartmuseum.asu.edu.
