This Week: September 14 – 20

The best thing about September is that all of the openings and events at our favorite galleries and museums are back in full force. Take a look at this week’s offerings!

Tuesday

Lecture and Ceremony
In celebration of JAUME PLENSA, AINSA III
UNC Charlotte Center City
2 pm

Internationally renown Spanish artist JAUME PLENSA will lecture at UNC Charlotte Center City Campus. His lecture coincides with the installation of a privately funded and donated sculpture (thanks QUEEN’S TABLE!). We loved the Plensa exhibition and events last year at Davidson College Art Galleries, so we look forward to this event!

AINSA II (2013) in Bordeaux, France

The large-scale seated human figure is made of die-cut stainless steel letters and symbols from different languages. “Ainsa I” is on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis; “Ainsa II” is in Bordeaux, France.
