360: Artists, Critics, Curators Speaker Series Featuring Artist Joseph Havel

| June 26, 2012 | Calendar

The Nasher Sculpture Center’s ongoing 360 Speaker Series features conversations and lectures on the ever-expanding definition of sculpture and the thought processes behind some of the world’s most innovative artwork, architecture, and design.

Joseph Havel, born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, currently lives and works in Houston, Texas, as the appointed director of the Glassell School of Art at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. Havel received his MFA from Pennsylvania State University and his BFA from the University of Minnesota. He has received countless grants and awards including an Artist’s Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Dallas Contemporary's Legends Award. He, too, was selected to participate in the 2000 Whitney Biennial followed by the 2001 Phoenix Triennial. Havel’s bronze sculpture "Exhaling Pearls," from the Museum of Fine Arts Houston collection, was included in the 1995 exhibition Twentieth-Century American Sculpture at the White House. And his work presides permanently in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Dallas Museum of Art and the Musée d’art et d’industrie in Roubaix, France.
