Tim Tate Lecture Series:: Critical Contacts: Significant Encounters and their Impact

Tim Tate, founder and co-director of the Washington Glass School, is a world renowned glass sculptor and video artist, will speak on the theme “Critical Contacts: Significant Encounters and their Impact” this Thursday, at 4 PM, in the auditorium (CF 101) on the ground floor of the MC Cafritz Foundation Arts Center in Silver Spring (930 King Street, off Georgia Avenue). 

The lecture, sponsored by the MC Arts Institute, will explore Mr. Tate’s remarkable career and the various intersections that have pushed it forward.  His work is in museum collections, and has been widely reviewed and published.  Earlier this year he had a solo exhibition of video pieces at the Katzen Museum at American University.   He has carried out major commissions in the DC metro area, such as the recently completed glass doors for the Library of Congress, as well as elsewhere in the world.  A congenial and engaging speaker, the lecture is sure to be of interest to anyone working in the arts area.
