Materiality in Stone Recommended

When: Sat., Jan. 16, 2:30-4 p.m. 2016
Price: $25.00
Sculptor, stonemason, and scholar of stonework Richard Rhodes will deliver the keynote lecture on Materiality to the Stonework Symposium.

Rhodes, of Seattle, apprenticed in the mason's guild of Siena, Italy. He has since dedicated his thirty-five-year career to mastering all aspects of stone, from quarrying, to building, to executing sculpture commissions.

In his lecture, Rhodes considers the essence of stone. The lecture draws from the 5,000 year history of the stone environment. Broadly accessible, the lecture appeals in particular to those with an interest in design. The lecture is richly illustrated with photographs from Rhodes’ forthcoming book, Stone Expression.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
