Doug Schatz on Geology, Sculpture and Fire; Watch Things Burn!

Written by Bruce on October 9th, 2011

Do you realize?

Here’s the next installment in the ‘Resolution of Arts and Sciences’ lecture series, and bring your Jiffy Pop because this looks really fun. Doug Schatz, Skidmore graduate and current art professor at SUNY Potsdam, studied both geology and studio art while at school, and the two disciplines intersected at FIRE.

Every lecture is made better by a demonstration, and when the demonstration involves the combustion of a cardboard-clad wire sculpture that looks like it was stolen from a Flaming Lips concert, you know it’s gonna rock. Come enjoy the first pseudo-bonfire of the season.

Tuesday 7:00pm @ Davis, sculpture burn outdoors (duh)
