Leslie-Lohman Speakers Series
We are proud to announce the official launch of the Leslie-Lohman Speakers Series. This newly established ongoing series of lectures will offer a minimum of one lecture per quarter with a focus on creating an environment and opportunity for studio based artists to interact with a public audience of diverse backgrounds, encouraging a dialogue between artist and audience. Lectures are free, and open to the public.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Be sure to check our website (LeslieLohman.org) for updates and additions to our tours and lectures.

The Body As Social Sculpture
Heather Cassils will be elaborating on the idea that our bodies are often formed in relation to societal expectations. Cassils will talk about their two most recent works "Cuts: A Traditional Sculpture" and "Becoming An Image" and unpack the process, historical context and points of inspiration which inform these works. Additionally Cassils will discuss their new works in progress and share yet to be seen excerpts with the audience.
