Swope Art Museum
Art Spaces, Inc. is pleased to present artist Brad J. Goldbergspeaking about his work on Wednesday, July 28th at 5:00 pm at the Swope Art Museum, 25 S. 7th St.
Art Chatter is a long running series of Art Spaces designed to offer an opportunity for community members to share the insights and vision of artists through images and conversation. Goldberg will share images of his many works and his approach to art. Light refreshments will be provided and beverages will be available for purchase. There is no charge to attend this event and no reservation is required.
Goldberg’s site-specific sculpture, to include a water feature, is scheduled for installation in Terre Haute’s City/County public plaza the week of July 19. This is Phase I Implementation of Turn to the River, a multi-year project of Art Spaces to reconnect Terre Haute’s downtown with the Wabash River through public art and design. Goldberg was selected through a competitive national process in 2020.
The Texas-based artist describes his work as a fusion between sculpture, landscape, and the built environment. He views sculptures not as isolated objects, but rather as spirit-creating components of larger spatial experiences. Locally, he visited the site and met with stakeholders of the project and city officials to determine a meaningful approach for this location. He will share insights that led to his concept for the artwork for Terre Haute.
Goldberg has worked collaboratively with artists, design professionals, civic leaders, and communities throughout the United States alongside his wife and business partner, Diana Goldberg.
Whether working with architects and engineers, craftsmen and contractors, or fabricating his own work, Goldberg is experienced in dealing with the realities of creating an artwork within a complex environment. “In time,” he states, “with many experiences layered over one another, I am hoping my work will reflect a cultural collage more in keeping with artistic truths than passing fashions.”
