Curator Series: Art and the Environment

July 17 2022

3-4 PM
NEON District One Memorial Pl., Norfolk, VA
Art and the Environment with Carolyn Swan Needell, PhD, Carolyn and Richard Barry Curator of Glass
January 23 at 3 p.m. in the Kaufman Theater
As the planet faces rapid changes as a result of human activity, many artists issue calls to action. While this is especially relevant today, artists have been grappling with these issues for centuries. Join the Chrysler curatorial team for five lectures that examine various approaches artists take to explore themes of the environment.
In the first lecture of the series, Look Around You: How the Environment Has Inspired Contemporary Glass Artists, Carolyn Swan Needell, PhD, the Carolyn and Richard Barry curator of glass, will showcase glassworks that are new to the Chrysler collection.
Learn about objects made using various glassworking techniques—blowing, flameworking, kiln forming, and hot sculpting—and discover how these artworks demonstrate the unique and intimate connections people form with their environments.
