Artist Lecture:

Laddie John Dill, BMoA Permanent Collection Artist
10:30AM - 11:30AM

Laddie John Dill, a Los Angeles artist, had his first solo exhibition at a New York City Gallery in 1971. A part of the “light and space” movement coming out of California in the 60’s and 70’s, his work “Light Plains” was recently acquired by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. BMoA is the permanent home of a 54-panel installation by the artist titled Volcanic Basin & Range, housed in the Museum’s foyer. Dill will join Curator Rachel Magnus for a conversation about his work, career and legacy.

Art Project:

Explore Material and Texture
10:00AM - 4:00PM | All Ages

This month’s project encourages you to investigate how different materials mix to create unique textures and finishes on a single surface. Based on the luminous and colorful façade of the Laddie John Dill’s Volcanic
Basin & Range
 installation in our foyer, Dill’s experimentation in mixed media shows several ways to incorporate what is man-made into organic formations.
