John B. Mors


Architecture: A Sculptor's Perspective

Lecture with John Mors

Thursday, June 14

6:45 p.m.

Trained as an architect, Australian John Mors produces sculpture based on the ethnic architecture he encountered on his many travels. His works are not, however, strict representations of architectural forms, but rather powerful works of art in their own right. Mors, whose sculpture is on view in the Octagon garden through June 30, will present a slide-illustrated lecture exploring the process of sculpture, particularly the conflict between sculpture as strict representation versus sculpture as form only. He will discuss several of his works in detail, from the initial concept to the process of creation to the final piece. Following the lecture, join us in the garden for a light reception and viewing of the exhibition.


Fee: $15 non-members; $10 members of AIA or Washington Sculptors Group
