Description
This unique exhibition explores and celebrates 81 years of the life and work of the popular contemporary Dutch artist Cyril Lixenberg. Exhibition dates: August 23 - November 1.

His monumental sculptures and colorful screen prints are exhibited throughout Grand Valleys campuses. New gifts of paintings and works on paper will be featured, including drawings, mono-prints, print editions, small sculptures and archival material.

Multiple exhibition venues across West Michigan, from the Grand Rapids Art Museum to the Muskegon Museum of Art, will simultaneously focus on particular aspects of Lixenberg's art.

Since its start in 2003, Fall Arts Celebration has featured some of the preeminent writers, poets, musicians, artists and scholars of our time. The tradition continues in 2013 with six signature events that aim to broaden our horizons, help us make sense of the new and unfamiliar, reflect on the past and be charmed by the classics.

All Fall Arts Celebration events are open to the public with free admission. Seating is limited for these popular performances. For more information, visit www.gvsu.edu/fallarts, or call (616) 331-2185.
