A Deep Dive into the Work of Floyd Tunson

February 4, 2021 @ 1:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until February 25, 2021

Focusing on a recent acquisition and other works by Floyd Tunson, Collections and Education staff at the FAC Museum will be leading in-depth experiences for students with Tunson’s work throughout the month of February. These engagements will focus on preservation, care, and representations of cultural identity and social histories within Tunson’s work. In pursuit of building community with higher education students, this experience is offered to all students currently enrolled in college or university. (Must present valid school ID at check-in.)

As an artist from Colorado and a previous exhibiter at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, Tunson explores concepts of cultural identity, American social history, pop culture, and the human condition. Tunson says that from one direction he sees “the terror of chaos, man’s inhumanity to man, mortality, and the unknown. From another direction, the human condition seems like a magnificent, orderly evolution of extraordinary beauty” stating that the totality of his work reflects his “quest to comprehend and express these forces and their interconnectedness.”

Students, space is limited — reserve your spot now!
