The Kentucky School of Art has an ambitious visiting artist program — this time they’re bringing Judy Pfaff to town. Pfaff specializes in sculpture and installations. Armed with an MFA from Yale University, she is now labeled as one of the pioneers of installation art in the 1970s. Her site-specific work is made from such media as fiberglass, found objects and steel.
Pfaff has won many awards, including the MacArthur Foundation Award as well as fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Memorial Foundation. She is also co-chair of Bard College’s art department at Annandale-on-Hudson, New York. Best of all, Pfaff’s talk is free. A reception follows. —Jo Anne Triplett
