This lecture is in connection with LaVergne's exhibition "Sequences" on view in the Netzorg-Kerr Gallery from 11/21/13-12/30/13. This exhibition will focus LaVergne's new awareness of his Nigerian Roots. These new sculptures will not address traditional African images, but speak of the impact that the ten months Fulbright Experience in Nigeria had on his confidence as an artist and a person. Al hopes his vocabulary in these works will express new ineffable nuances which celebrates life. 5:30pm, Room 2008 Lecture Hall.
