Double Take: David Smith
With David Stebenne and John Lippold
Wed, Feb 8, 2012 12:30 PM
In our Double Take series, Ohio State faculty from two different fields offer their perspectives on Wexner Center exhibitions.

Join us as David Stebenne from the Department of History and the Moritz College of Law and John Lippold from the Welding Engineering program in the Department of Material Science and Engineering discuss the philosophy, history, science, and techniques behind the works in David Smith: Cubes and Anarchy.

David Smith: Cubes and Anarchy was organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and made possible by Alice and Nahum Lainer, the National Endowment for the Arts, Gagosian Gallery, and the Steven F. Roth Family Foundation. Additional support was provided by the Steaven K. and Judith G. Jones Foundation, Myron Laskin, Agnes Gund, Dorothy R. Sherwood, Terri and Michael Smooke, the Dedalus Foundation, Ellie and Mark Lainer, and the Lipman Family Foundation.

The exhibition’s presentation at the Wexner Center is supported by an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and the Humanities and a generous grant from the Jon and Mary Shirley Foundation.
