Immediately following Open Studios at 7:00 pm, Los Angeles Times Art Critic, David Pagel, will appear as a guest lecturer and will discuss contemporary arts from his perspective as an art critic and writer. This special public event will take place in Storm Hall West, Room 11 on the SDSU Campus. In addition to his work at the Los Angeles Times, David Pagel is a Professor of Art Theory and History at Claremont Graduate University and an adjunct curator at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, NY, where he recently organized “Unfinished Business: Paintings from the 1970s and 1980s by Ross Bleckner, Eric Fischl and David Salle.”
