Reawakening the Renaissance – An afternoon with Kurt Wenner
March 12th at 3:30pm
Spend an Afternoon with world-renowned artist and inventor of 3D pavement art Kurt Wenner, as he recounts a fascinating journey that started in Rome and took him around the world. Wenner’s studies of the European classical tradition found it to be a language of form with ancient roots that is still a valid vehicle for artistic expression. His studies and works include drawings, paintings, sculpture, architecture, and decorative arts; as well as innovative contemporary media.
Admission includes entry to the Artist Reception, immediately following the presentation in the theatre lobby. Present your ticket stub for a free glass of wine or sparkling cider!
Buried Brilliance – The Lost Language of Classical Design
March 13th at 2:00pm
European art has left a mountain of astounding masterpieces in painting, sculpture, and architecture, but today it is often a mystery as to how these feats of human expression were accomplished. Kurt Wenner will demonstrate the structural nature of classical design and drawing; with live drawing demonstrations of geometry, proportion, and a figure study from Michelangelo. He will show how the classical tradition is not a style, but an actual language of form based on a profound knowledge and appreciation of the physical universe. An image by Michelangelo will be projected and accompanied by a live feed camera on Wenner’s hand as he demonstrates how the Old Masters created their work.
