Cannupa Hanska Luger will give artist lecture April 4

Cannupa Hanska Luger, a visiting artist with Center for Creativity and the Arts, will give an artist lecture from 3:30 to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, April 4, in the Alice Peters Auditorium in the Peters Business Building. An Artist Exhibit and Reception will held from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, April 6, at the M Street Graduate Studios. The Center for Creativity and the Arts commissioned Luger to create a sculpture that reflects his values as a Native American artist. His sculpture will be titled “Pillar” and will consist of life-sized slip casts of Buffalo head forms, which will be glazed or rendered in various colors representing minerals and other resource materials extracted from sacred lands throughout the U.S. A dedication ceremony for “Pillar” will take place at 1:30 p.m. April 7, on the west lawn of the Conley Arts Building. At the dedication ceremony, Luger will donate an art piece to Fresno State’s Native American Alumni Club. INFO: Cindy Urrutia, director of CCA, at CCAFresnoState@csufresno.edu or 559.278.8341.
