On Wednesday, April 22, at 7:30 p.m., three graduating art history majors at Hope College will be presenting their senior research papers in Cook Auditorium of the De Pree Art Center, located on Columbia Avenue at 12th Street.
The public is invited. Admission is free.
All three of the presentations will be
illustrated. The presenters are Derek Walvoord of Holland;
Sarah McGaughey of Jenison; and Dan Benes of Ann Arbor.
Walvoord's essay, "Frank Lloyd Wright: The
California Textile Block House," is a study of some of the
American architect's lesser known and long-ignored
buildings. McGaughey, in her paper, "Anselm Kiefer: A
reunified Nation, An Artistic Rebirth," will discuss works
by contemporary German artist Anselm Kiefer in the context
of the division and subsequent reunification of Germany.
Benes will present the work of 19th century German artist
Adolph Menzel in his essay, "Adolph Menzel: The
Contradictions of His Works."
