Judy Pfaff, professional sculptor and installation artist, will present a lecture on Monday, March 5, at 4 p.m. in Bradford Auditorium. Pfaff’s visit is part of the Art Department’s Visiting Artist Series, and is free and open to the public.
Pfaff’s exuberant, sprawling sculptures weave together landscape, color and architecture in a visually engaging and expressive whole. Her work has included dramatic three-dimensional installations, sets for theatrical stage productions and a series of prints incorporating vegetation and medical illustrations.
She has received numerous awards, including a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Award, and fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. She has had major exhibitions at Elvehjem Museum of Art, University of Wisconsin, Madison; Denver Art Museum; St. Louis Art Museum; and Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo.
