  2. Spring Art Exhibition to Feature 'Margaret Lanterman: Sculpture'

    February 6, 2018, 12:00 PM - April 14, 2018, 5:00 PM

    Margaret Lanterman is an artist and art educator who explores the interface between nature and culture in sculptural and two-dimensional works. Originally educated as an ethologist, Lanterman’s study of animal behavior spurred her life-long artistic journey, which has resulted in works in various media from found objects to cast plaster to wood. Three distinct bodies of Lanterman’s work from different time periods—staff sculptures, hand portraits (workers) and “mind games”—will be displayed when Elmhurst College hosts “Margaret Lanterman: Sculpture” from March 6 through April 14 in the Barbara A. Kieft Accelerator ArtSpace (200 W. Park Ave., Elmhurst, elmhurst.edu/campusmap). A public reception for the artist will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 7. An Artist’s Talk will take place at 5:00 p.m. Admission is free to the exhibition and reception, and the public is invited.
