CONCEPTS AND PROCESSES IN PUBLIC SCULPTURE
BOHEMIAN SHORT SHOUTS
April 15, 2009
The newly built SRJC Art Gallery (1501 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa; 707.527.4298) in the splendid Doyle Library mounts the ambitious "Concepts and Processes in Public Sculpture," an exhibit looking at the work of such national and local artists as Ned Kahn and Alice Aycock, Christina Lucas and Bruce Beasley, Robert Ellison and John deMarchi, John Watrous, Bruce Johnson, Michael Stutz, Riis Bursell, Roger Berry and William Wareham. Examining the public-art process from conception through tedious city council meetings through artistic inspiration and actual placement, the exhibit features Beasley in discussion on April 24 and Stutz on May 5.
