Alliance of the Swope Presents: A Tour of Art History Through the Eyes of an Artist
Rod Bradfield will talk about influences on his work from art masterpieces stretching from the Pre-Renaissance period all the way up to Contemporary Art, showing examples of those influences and how he has brought those ideas into his own work. Rod considers art to be, in part, a dialog between other artists and himself. The creativity of others often stimulates new ideas for his own work. The act of bringing those influences into his art sometimes takes him off in new and unexpected directions. Although born in Terre Haute, he moved away as a child then returned to attend Indiana State University. He has been a practicing artist since graduation, living primarily in Terre Haute. Come and listen to an interesting artist guide you through his perspective on the world of art.
