    Wax Works

    Presented by at Harvard Art Museums/Arthur M. Sackler Museum

    April 6, 2013


    Wax Works

    Martin Kline, artist; and Stephan Wolohojian, Landon and Lavinia Clay Curator, and Head, Division of European and American Art, Harvard Art Museums

    Artists have been working with wax for millennia. They have modeled it into sculpture and used it as a medium for painting. This gallery conversation pairs a curator with a leading contemporary artist working in encaustic to explore the richness of this medium and its long history.

    This series considers objects from more than one point of view. The informal talks, many of them by Harvard Art Museums curators, conservators, and educators and Harvard University faculty members, are designed to stimulate thinking about works of art and to encourage participants to explore their own ways of seeing.

    Free with the price of admission.

    Gallery talks are informal and include discussion. Limited to 25 participants; please arrive early.
