The Power of Art and Culture

Steven D. Lavine arrived at CalArts in 1988. He leaves next year after a 29-year presidency. While the school on the hill may go unnoticed by many, it is one of the premiere institutions for artistic education in the country. Its alumni have influenced art, music, film, and popular culture throughout the world.

We are honored to have Steven D. Lavine as the final speaker in our 2016 series. Mr. Lavine will talk about his tenure at CalArts, and describe the future he sees for the school and himself. It will be an eventful conversation and evening.

Thursday, October 27, 2016 – 6:30 pm, at the Old Town Newhall Library

Warm art from hard woods

As a sculptor, former Santa Clarita resident Scott Bruckner started working with cast-off construction materials. Now he uses exotic woods like Cocobola and African Mahogany for his award-winning sculptures.

Traveling in Europe, living on both coasts, and the works of Alexander Calder and Louise Nevelson have influenced Bruckner’s art. Enjoy an enlightening and fun conversation with Scott Bruckner.
