Lunch & Learn: Meet the Sculptor!

  • Turchin Center for the Visual Arts 423 West King Street Boone, NC, 28607 United States (map)

Regionally beloved sculptor and philanthropist, Bill Brown will provide a fascinating preview of his stunning exhibition entitled “Refugee,” a collection of sculptures created in response to the growing international crisis affecting millions around the globe. Each freestanding metal piece in the series begins with a figurative form perched on a platform that metaphorically references the refugee journey: a rocking boat, an isolated rooftop, a beloved homeland. Brown’s hope is that his work will encourage active and engaged solutions; to that end, he donates a percentage of each sale to organizations that directly address the crisis.

Following the presentation, participants will enjoy an opportunity to preview the exhibition with the artist.
