Join the Laguna Art Museum for a lively artist panel about artworks donated by Stuart Spence and Judith Vida-Spence to Laguna Art Museum. Co-moderated by artist, writer, and professor Tom Lawson, and LAM’s Curatorial Fellow Rochelle Steiner, this panel will include artists whose work is currently on view at the museum. Together, they will engage in discussion about the artistic community that evolved in Southern California in the late 1980s and 1990s; their wide-ranging artistic approaches that are both conceptual and personal; and the critical support of the Spences and others at that time.
View the exhibition and enjoy pizza following the discussion; a throw-back to the pizza parties thrown by the Spences.
Advance tickets recommended.
Museum members: $30
