Glass artist David Levi will present lecture Thursday

Glass artist and designer David Levi will give a visiting artist lecture at 7 p.m. Thursday in Morris Library’s John C. Guyon Auditorium.

The event is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the School of Art and Design, the event is part of the Visiting Artist Program and funded by the Fine Arts Activity Fee.

Levi has made sculpture and functional works using glass as his primary medium since 1983, and he gained national recognition for his innovative and timely work in the 1980s and 1990s during the peak of the American Studio Glass Movement.

Levi’s work belongs to permanent museum collections including the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C.; the St. Louis Art Museum, and the William J. Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Levi is the co-founder and principal in Ibex Glass Studio. He teaches and lectures at glass, crafts and design schools and maintains a studio in Oakland, California.
