How Do Artists Respond? Adult Workshop
Teacher(s): David J. Spear
November 10, 2018
11 AM-1:00 PM
Missoula Art Museum - Spacer

Join photographer David J. Spear in an exploration of the ideas behind Philip Guston’s controversial 1969 painting Cigar. Guston created this work shortly after he rejected the limitations of abstract expressionism and returned to figurative painting. This shift allowed him to comment more explicitly on the social and political climate of the time. In this workshop Spear will explore some of the ways in which artists respond—through materials, to one another, and to current issues in the wider world.
