Jaume Plensa: The Subtle and Tenacious
Local Roots of the Global Artist
Thursday, September 17
Speaker: Dr. Andres Zamora, Associate Professor of Spanish at Vanderbilt University
There are very few contemporary artists with the universal dimension, both in terms of inspiration and visibility, of Jaume Plensa. His work transcends political and cultural borders achieving a transnational quality perfectly attune to an ever more global world. However, underneath Plensa’s universality, and perhaps as an ironic cause of that condition, it is possible to find local substrata of Catalan, Spanish and Mediterranean layers which understatedly, but vigorously, manifest themselves in surprising and significant ways.
Cheekwood: Looking Forward to Our Past
Thursday, October 15
In 1959 when Cheekwood officially opened to the public, the Fine Art Center, created for the purpose of exhibiting work of art and education visitors, operated in what was the former home of the Cheek family. The thirty-year-old historically-inspired structure, was, itself, not yet considered historic. Now, almost a century later, Cheekwood has taken important first steps toward the restoration of its historic origins through the research of the building, furnishings, and the era in which it Cheekwood was created. Leslie B. Jones, Curator of Decorative Arts and Historic Interpretation, will outline the step-by-step process of and proposed outcome for Cheekwood’s restored interiors.
