   Event Description :

Prof. David McCarthy of Rhodes' Department of Art and Art History will present "Thinking Inside the Box: American Sculpture of the 1960s" at the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art.

He will discuss 1960s artist Marisol in relation to several sculptors of her generation. These artists attempted to negotiate both the ongoing tradition of modernist innovation and the rise of the United States to a position of economic and military power.

McCarthy is a former Smithsonian Senior fellow, author of several books and articles on American art of the twentieth century, and is currently completing a study of antiwar art since the 1930s.

His talk is included with museum admission.
