“MASTERS & MENTOR COLLABORATION”
5:00 – 6:00 pm / ArtSpot International Zone
Speaker: Lawrence Voytek / Fine Art Fabricator for Robert Rauschenberg
Lawrence Voytek: The History of Art and the business of making art has been the focus of Sculptor Lawrence Voytek’s life. He was the director of art production for Robert Rauschenberg for over twenty eight years, and he has consulted for art installation, fabrication and restoration with renowned national and international museums and galleries. Lawrence’s work can be found in many important corporate and private collections.
About Robert Rauschenberg: Robert Rauschenberg was an American painter and graphic artist whose early works anticipated the Pop Art movement. Rauschenberg is well known for his “Combines” of the 1950s, in which non-traditional materials and objects were employed in innovative combinations. Rauschenberg was both a painter and a sculptor and the Combines are a combination of both, but he also worked with photography, printmaking, papermaking, and performance. He was awarded the National Medal of Arts in 1993. He became the recipient of the Leonardo da Vinci World Award of Arts in 1995 in recognition of his more than 40 years of fruitful artmaking.
