Drop in for an afternoon of conversation about contemporary art! Curator Alison de Lima Greene joins Richard Stout and Jim Edwards in conversation about their work and the book Sense of Home: The Art of Richard Stout.

As a faculty member at both the Glassell School of Art and the University of Houston, Stout has had an impact on the local art community for many years. His work is represented in the MFAH collections, including a print on view in the exhibition 40 Years of Discovery: Gifts of Clint Willour and a painting at the Glassell School of Art.

Edwards, a curator of contemporary art and a writer, contributed the essay “Sculpture” for Sense of Home. He is also a gallery director and is on the faculty at Houston Baptist University.

A book signing and reception for Sense of Home follow the talk. Doors open at 2:30 p.m.

Drop in! This program, which takes place on the mezzanine level of the Beck Building, is free.
