Schneider Museum of Art Curator and Artist-In-Residence

Ashland, OR – The Schneider Museum of Art is presenting A Maypole, a Hanging Tree, a Boundary Marker, a lecture by Daniel Duford, on Thursday, May 9, at 5:30 PM in the Meese Auditorium at the Center for the Visual Arts on the Southern Oregon University (SOU) campus. The Museum will be open at 5:00 – a half hour before the lecture on May 9.

Duford states: “I will discuss my body of work in relationship to story. I work in several contexts, tapping in different art histories and readings of my work. I will discuss how overlapping contexts and an expanded field of discourse can enrich and complicate an artwork.” Duford is the curator of the Museum’s current exhibition, Fighting Men: Golub, Voulkos, Kirby, and is the Center for the Visual Arts’ current artist-in-residence. Fighting Men: Golub, Voulkos, Kirby features the paintings of Leon Golub, prints and ceramics by Peter Voulkos, and superhero comics by the illustrator who was at the forefront of this genre, Jack Kirby.
