Event Description
As part of the Department of Visual Art's visiting artist series, the Spencer Museum welcomes sculptor Chido Johnson to speak about his life and work. A Detroit artist hailing originally from Zimbabwe (when it was still known as Rhodesia), Johnson claims to have become an artist in order to be a clown, a gorilla and a priest. Some of his interactive, community-based sculptural work can be seen here: http://chidox.com/desktop/woodward/adancefordiego.html
