Artist's Perspective: Ben Venom "Heavy Quilting"
Auditorium ~ FREE
In this lecture, San Francisco-based artist, Ben Venom will discuss his interest in juxtaposing traditional handmade crafts with one of the more extreme musical genres, heavy metal. His work can be described as a collision of Iron Maiden metal ballads with the outrageous stage antics of Ozzy Osbourne. His work is serious, yet attempts to take on a B-movie horror film style, where even the beasts of metal need a warm blanket to sleep with.
