Historic Yellow Springs invites you to join us for “Adrian Martinez—From the White House to Historic Yellow Springs—An Artistic Journey.” Martinez, internationally known artist, teacher and lecturer, will speak about his experiences creating art at the White House, working with President and Mrs. George W. Bush, and how this experience changed his art and ambitions growing up in Washington D.C.
Martinez will share his insights and knowledge of American art, history and culture in the last half of the 20th century, and how his artistic evolution in the 21st century has progressed. Using his firsthand experience as stage actor/dancer, set designer, art and history lecturer, curator, museum exhibit designer, painter, sculptor and printmaker, Martinez makes a case for cultural survival in this challenging era of exploding information.
The lecture will be on February 23, 2019 from 1 to 3 p.m. Tickets may be purchased in advance or at the door.
