Visiting artist Andy Buck concludes season of lectures at Anderson Ranch

Dec 4, 2017

Furniture maker, sculptor and educator Andy Buck will give a lecture at Anderson Ranch Arts Center Tuesday night, concluding this year’s visiting artist series.


Andy Buck has been working on a totem sculpture in the furniture shop at Anderson Ranch for almost a week. Buck said he lets African and aboriginal artwork inform the pieces he makes.

“Most people that make artwork develop a visual language, so mine's sort of based in familiar forms that I see in nature and then colors that I'm inspired by," he said.


Buck is a professor and program chair for the Furniture Design Program at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Before that, he worked for former White House Chief of Staff Leon Panetta as he was first starting out.


Buck will share insight from his own evolution and process throughout the years as a visiting artist and critic at Anderson Ranch Tuesday night at 5:30 in the Schermer Meeting Hall on campus.
