Artist’s Forum is a program in which artists discuss the thoughts and processes behind their work. Participants are encouraged to come and be part of the dialogue.
Will Ryman and Rachel Owens introduce the ideas behind their works currently on view on the grounds of the Frist Center for the Visual Arts. Ryman discusses his humorous and absurd larger than life sculptures, including Rose on 65th Street (2011) which is currently on view on the Broadway side of the Frist. Following this, Owens discusses her sculpture Inveterate Composition for Clare (2011) installed near the Demonbreun Street entrance to the Frist Center from March 2013 through August 2014. Both sculptures were created and publicly exhibited in New York City under the auspices of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.
