Evolution by Ralph PascucciFeb 4, 2014, 11:30 AM to Mar 7, 2014, 4:30 PM Location: Juergensen Gallery
Lecture at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 4, in IT 225.
"Through drawings of zombis, explosions, and natural world, the show would highlight works on paper investigating a larger idea of evolution as it relates to the progress of humanity. On another level the show will illustrate a notion of evolution within my own studio practice; demonstrating how one concept can 'evolve' and propel the work in a new direction." - Ralph Pascucci
