Lecture by artist Jaume Plensa

Wednesday, March 21

Art University City & West Philly

The Arthur Ross Gallery is proud to announce that Jaume
Plensa, Spanish artist and sculptor, will present the second
annual Susan T. Marx Distinguished Lecture on March 21, 2018.
Plensa is a renowned contemporary artist working in the
public realm and his art is driven by a desire to emphasize
the possibilities of communication brought about through
sculpture and place. His sculpture in Penn’s Art Collection,
Endless III, 2010 is composed of interwoven letters and
symbols that capture the light and create a metaphorical
language that connects all people.
Through this annual lecture series Susan T. Marx (CW’66) and
the Arthur Ross Gallery seek to inspire Penn students across
disciplines to develop an interest in or a passion for art and to
attract a regional and national audience. Funding for the Susan
T. Marx Distinguished Lecture Series is provided by a gift to
the University of Pennsylvania from Susan T. Marx to fund the
lecture series.
