Artist to Speak at Texas Tech School of Art

Sculptor and Installation Artist to Speak at Texas Tech School of Art

Written by Erin Hawes

Landmark Arts at the Texas Tech University School of Art will host a public artist talk by Greg Metz, a sculpture and installation artist. The presentation will begin at 7 p.m. on Oct. 15 in room B-01 in the School of Art Building.

Metz is a senior lecturer at the University of Dallas as well as an internationally known sculptor and installation/performance artist. His efforts led to the founding of the MAC, an alternative arts organization and performance center in Dallas. His work is political in nature and issue oriented, focusing on art as propaganda. In 1984, Metz received his master’s degree in printmaking from Indiana University.

The exhibitions, speakers and related programs at Landmark Arts and the Texas Tech School of Art are made possible in part by grants from the Helen Jones Foundation and The CH Foundation. Additional support comes from cultural activities fees administered through the College of Visual and Performing Arts.

The Art Building is located at 2802 18th Street (near the corner of 18th Street and Flint Avenue, just east of the Architecture Building on the Texas Tech Campus). Monday through Friday, visitor parking is available for $1.20 per hour in the small lot adjacent to the Art Building and on the fourth floor of the Flint Avenue Parking Garage. Parking is free on weekends.

The event is free and open to the public.
