Libby Dawson Farr to Speak at Maryhill Museum

Dr. Libby Dawson Farr, interior design faculty, will join other scholars discussing the sculpture of James Lee Hansen at Maryhill Museum on May 17, 2014.

James Lee Hansen's works are in numerous private and public collections, including many prominently installed sculptures in cities throughout the region. The artist will be joined by four panelists for a lively discussion of his work, his influences and his influence on Northwest art and artists.

Panelists include:

Libby Dawson Farr, Department of Art & Interior Design at Marylhurst University
Bruce F. Literal and M.J. Anderson, former students of Hansen
Roger Hull, professor emeritus of art history at Willamette University and senior faculty curator, Hallie Ford Museum of Art

James Lee Hansen: Sculpture features more than 30 of the artist's maquettes and small sculptures and includes works produced from the 1960s to the present. They are accompanied by photo panels showing Hansen's larger sculptures and architectural commissions. The exhibition runs through July 27, 2014.

The Marylhill Museum of Art is located at 35 Maryhill Museum Drive, Goldendale, Wash.

Libby Dawson Farr is a faculty member in the Department of Art & Interior Design and an expert on noted Northwest architect Pietro Belluschi. She was instrumental in bringing the Griffith House to the Marylhurst campus, now known as the Belluschi Pavilion.
