New Orleans Museum of Art: Arthur Silverman Panel

Wednesday, April 8 @ 6pm

Arthur Silverman Panel and Cocktail Tasting

A panel discussion reflecting on sculptor Arthur Silverman's 45-year career. Panelists include architect Ivan Mandich, curator Patricia Chandler (Walda and Sydney Besthoff Collection) and artists John Clemmer and James Lamantia. Silverman's best-known work is based on the tetrahedron, the use of one geometric element in repetition. Silverman has executed more than 400 metal sculptures of various proportions and his work is displayed in more than 30 New Orleans buildings. To read more about Silverman, check out this 1999 article from Science News, "The Art of the Tetrahedron." You can also view installation images of a 2002 Silverman exhibition at LeMieux Galleries by clicking here.

This Mid-Week in Mid-City also features a complimentary specialty cocktail tasting in the Great Hall, courtesy of Stolichnaya Russian Vodka.
