August 13 – Docent Talk on Auguste Rodin

Internationally famous during his lifetime, Rodin is widely regarded as the pioneer of modern sculpture.  With samples of work around the world, his legacy continues to be studied and deeply admired by fellow artists, experts, scholars and art connoisseurs, as well as beloved by the public.  He rose from humble beginnings to create many powerful works of art, including The Thinker, The Kiss, and Monument to Balzac.  Through his work, Rodin developed new ways for viewers to see and think about sculpture.

Our programs are free and open to the public at the El Cerrito Community Center, 7007 Moeser Lane.

The September 10th program returns us to artist demonstration mode with ECAA member and printmaker Rich Fowler. He plans to include some hands-on opportunities for those attending.
