Anthony Sonnenberg Artist’s Talk

March 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Join multimedia artist Anthony Sonnenberg for a conversation on his distinctive approach to sculptural objects of beauty.

Sonnenberg will give an overview of his work during this artist talk, including his hand-built ceramic sculptures that echo the decadent elaborations of Baroque and Rococo styles. He will also talk about his process and the underlying themes and inspirations for his work, which include Greek mythology.

This free event is open to the public and made possible by a gift from the Indiana University Queer Philanthropy Circle and a Pride-filled donor.

JOIN US IN PERSON

Sonnenberg’s talk will take place from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 22, in Eskenazi Hall’s Basile Auditorium. A reception will follow.

ATTEND VIRTUALLY

Guests who prefer to attend virtually can register in advance through Zoom at go.iu.edu/4MJJ.
