Free Lecture and Reception
By Famed Artist and Sculptor Bruce Beasley
Sunday, December 14 at 4 p.m., Annenberg Theater

A special lecture and reception with famed artist and sculptor, Bruce Beasley, celebrating Sculpture and Nature is set for Sunday, December 14 at 4 p.m. at the Annenberg Theater, part of FREE 2nd SUNDAYS at the museum. Generously underwritten by Bradford W. Bates, the program includes a lecture by the artist, where Beasley will discuss the concept of Sculpture and Nature, followed by a hosted reception with hors d’oeuvres and no-host bar.

Earlier this year, in honor of the museum’s 75th Anniversary and the 50th Anniversary of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, Bradford W. Bates donated the work of art titled New Horizon, a sculpture bench carved from one piece of granite weighing nearly one and a half tons. Bates was additionally motivated to donate and place the piece atop the Tramway as a way to celebrate the spirit of openness and creativity that Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley is known for.

On October 22, the work of art was airlifted by helicopter from Palm Springs Art Museum to the Tramway’s Mountain Station at an elevation of 8,500-feet.  The bench reportedly is the only piece of public art at such an elevation in the country, and quite possibly the world.
Beasley, recognized internationally for the abstract sculptures he has produced in a prolific career stretching over 50 years, will offer a reflection on the relationship between natural forms and his sculptural expression during this lecture. Beasley works – in bronze, granite, metal, and wood – are in museums and private collections worldwide.
