University of Houston Libraries is pleased to host a viewing of the documentary, Jesse Lott: Art and Activism, at the University of Houston Dudley Recital Hall, located in the Fine Arts Building, on Thursday, September 13.
Lott is an influential African American artist known for “visionary wire sculpture, paper figures, and works on paper made using found materials.” He is one of the founders of Project Row Houses. The film follows Lott as he prepares for his 2016 show at Art League Houston where he was presented the Lifetime Achievement Award by his childhood friend, Mel Chin.
The event will begin with a reception at 6:30 p.m. with the documentary showtime at 7 p.m. A conversation with Lott and Thibodeaux will follow, along with a sculpture demonstration by the artist.
Light refreshments will be served. The event is free and open to the public, and registration is required.
