You're invited to my lecture at The Magnes Collection. Three of their menorahs (shown below) will be on display as discuss these objects along with some of my Judaica work within the framework of Recycle, Repurpose and the Meaning of Materials. This lecture will be followed by a Q&A discussion with the audience. This event is free.
Please join us for this lunch time event - Wednesday, October 29, 2014. The talk will begin at 12:00pm, noon and end around 12:40pm. Then there will be about 20 minutes for the audience to ask questions.

Here are some questions...what are yours?
What is the difference between recycled and repurposed materials when used in artwork?
Does the selection of certain materials imbue meaning in the finished work and how does this contribute to a viewer's perception of the object?
