Fresno State will host Los Angeles-based artist Kiel Johnson at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 17, at the John Wright Theatre. Johnson’s drawings and sculptures tell tales and layered narratives that speak of his travels and adventures throughout everyday life. Johnson will speak on the way he uses drawings and sculptures to bring inanimate to life.

Johnson’s work has been exhibited widely in galleries and museums around the country, with recent solo shows at Mark Moore Gallery, Los Angeles; Davidson Contemporary, New York; and the Taubman Museum, Roanoke. Tickets can purchased at www.csusummerarts.orgINFO: Mariah Walton at
