Artist Talk: Charles Long

Charles Long’s practice might be compared to that of an alchemist: the blending of art, science, and spirituality, driven by a sincere pursuit of answers to existential questions, and imbued with a healthy dose of imagination and play. For this public talk, Long puts his outdoor multisensory sculpture Pet Sounds, 2012, and newly commissioned immersive environment CATALIN, 2014, in the context of his past work.

Following the talk, join the artist at a viewing of Pet Sounds at Laguna Gloria. Free shuttles for guests will depart the Jones Center at 3P and run continuously between the Jones Center and Laguna Gloria locations from 3 to 5P.
