Description: On October 30, Pepon Osorio, artist, will present the Conrad Nelson Lecture. This artist lecture will take place in Steinman Hall at the Ware Center, Millersville University Lancaster.
About the Artist: Pepon Osorio's pieces, influenced by his experience as a social worker in the Bronx, evolve from an interaction with the community within which he is working. By presenting work in unconventional places as well as museums, Osorio explores the multiple meanings his installations achieve depending on their location. Osorio is a professor at Temple University's Tyler School of the Arts. He is also the recipient of numerous distinctions including the 2001 Skowhegan Medal for Sculpture, the Whitney Biennial, 1993; an Alpert Award in the Arts-Visual Arts, 1999 and a John D. and Catherine T. McArthur Foundation Fellowship.
