Art exhibit on garden theme to remain at Hubbard Library through December 7
Brehm Center's Fred Davison, Wickman and daughter
A reception was held at Fuller’s David Allan Hubbard Library on Friday, October 23, to celebrate the opening of “Approaching Eden,” an exhibition featuring seven pieces by artist Patty Wickman set in contemporary gardens.
Sponsored by the Brehm Center for Worship, Theology, and the Arts, the exhibit will be on display at the Hubbard Library through December 7 (extended from November 23). It is open to the public.
The exhibition is part of the Pasadena Arts Council’s 2009 Art & Ideas Festival, "Origins." Fuller is a collaborating partner in the citywide festival, which is offered to the public every two years by a consortium of Pasadena-area arts, science, cultural, and educational institutions.
In the exhibit Wickman, who is Professor of Painting and Drawing at UCLA, explores contemporary garden narratives, shaping a dialogue between the narratives of the Bible and the anxieties of a postmodern, globalized world.
