Due to JCCC's spring break, this month's Third Thursday at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art is planned for the fourth Thursday of March. The event takes place in the museum's Hudson Auditorium with special guest artists Amy Myers and Todd Cero-Atl and JCCC moderators Larry Thomas, professor, fine arts, and Laura Gascogne, associate professor, fine arts. Myers creates intricate, monumental drawings that include references to mathematics and scientific exploration. The artist works on several drawings simultaneously and lets each piece develop intuitively; the process of completion takes up to one year. The daughter of a particle physicist, Myers attributes the development of her artistic style to an early exposure to math and science. Cero-Atl investigates personal narratives of sacrifice, protection, offering and loss through his ceramic sculptures and mixed media installations. He combines functional clay vessels with cast figures and found objects, and he also creates performance art presented as video. Each media represents a metaphor for the artist. The program is free and open to the public. No tickets or reservations are required.
Thu., March 25, 3:30-4:30 p.m., 2010
