In Conversation: Karen Conway on Edwin Schlossberg
Work of Art Lecture Series
Meeting: November 16 @ 6-7:30 PM
Location: 1308 Third Avenue, Spring Lake, NJ
Summary: Working alongside artists such as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, and Buckminster Fuller during the 1960s in New York, Edwin Schlossberg developed an art practice focused on the meaning of words rather than their letter forms. A creative polymath with notable achievements in the realms of art, architecture, and design, Edwin Schlossberg. Schlossberg continues to work as a pioneer in the field of interactive experience.
Join us this month for the second installment of our Work of Art lecture series as curator Karen Conway explores Edwin Schlossberg's career from his early influences to his current work.
