    Leonardo Drew and Nari Ward

    Join us for an exciting conversation between acclaimed contemporary artists, Leonardo Drew and Nari Ward. The dynamic program celebrates the recent acquisitions of artworks by the artists into the Norton's Contemporary Collection.

    Nari Ward is a Jamaican-American artist based in New York City and is known for his sculptural installations composed of discarded found material collected throughout his Harlem neighborhood. Ward re-contextualizes these found objects in thought provoking sculpture that create complex conversations around social and political realities of race, migration, democracy, and community.

    Leonardo Drew is a contemporary American artist based in Brooklyn, New York. He creates sculptures from natural materials and through processes of oxidation, burning, and decay, Drew transforms these objects into massive sculptures that critique social injustices and the cyclical nature of existence.

    Seating is limited; online registration required.
