with an Introduction by Tom Michael

Thursday, May 2, 2024 - 6:30 PM

Join SVMoA for Art Club—a new program for those who want to learn more about contemporary art.

The film explores the life and career of experimental artist Robert Irwin, whose installations in have radically expanded the possibilities of what art can be. Irwin began as a painter in LA’s “Cool School” scene, before developing a new way of working that made perception itself the subject. Irwin’s notable works include the Central Garden at the Getty Center in LA and untitled (dawn to dusk) in Marfa, Texas.

The film will be introduced by Tom Michael, Boise State Public Radio’s general manager.
