On Sunday afternoon at 3:00 pm, Canadian artist Reinhard Reitzenstein will present an illustrated talk on his most recent projects.

Reitzenstein’s work explores the interconnections of nature, culture, science and technology. He works in several parallel areas: indoor installation and sculpture using cast, spun and welded metals, wood, glass, photography, digitally processed images; large scale drawings; outdoor tree-based installations and sound art. He travels and exhibits his work extensively, often addressing contemporary cultural issues in his public lectures.  He has been the Head of the Department of Art Sculpture Program at SUNY, Buffalo, since 2000.

Tickets for the lecture are $20.00.
