Sean Scully Lecture
Description:
For More Webcasts & Podcasts: http://americanart.si.edu/interact/#webcasts?siref=Youtube&video=seanscully On May 19th, an eager audience gathered in the McEvoy Auditorium to hear artist Sean Scully, an event that marked the opening of The Prints of Sean Scully. The exhibition features a selection from his complete set of master prints, which the artist donated to the museum's permanent collection. Throughout his lecture, Scully combined his sharp wit and an obvious reverence for the creative process while he discussed the larger themes prevalent in his works, including some examples from the print collection on view in the exhibition. The artist also shared insight into the differences between painting and printmaking, the impact each technique has on his artistic approach and the inspirational effect poetry and literature have on his artwork.
