Lecture on Artist José Orozco at Colby Feb. 26
On Tuesday, February 26, art historian Sharon Lorenzo will present a slide show lecture entitled “The Work of José Clemente Orozco at Dartmouth College.” The event will be held at 4:30 p.m. in room 154 of Bixler Art and Music Center. It is open to the public and free of charge.
Lorenzo, who teaches art history at Muhlenberg College, will discuss the Mexican muralist, José Clemente Orozco. Orozco led the Mexican renaissance movement with fellow artist Diego Rivera. His work is bold in execution and deals compassionately with social themes, especially that of people versus machines. Lorenzo is currently completing a Ph.D. in art history at the City University of New York. She received her master’s degree from Rutgers University.
