Poetic Visions The Art of Lebadang
Saturday, September 22, 2018, 5:00 PM
Among the highlights of the Besser Museum’s fine art collection are eighteen luminous works by the Vietnamese-born French artist, Lebadang (1922-2015). Lebadang was a painter, sculptor, and printmaker who produced an enormous body of work over his long career. Best known for his inventive use of materials and techniques in the field of printmaking, Lebadang explored many themes, subjects, and styles. The limited-edition prints on view in Poetic Visions were part of a generous 1997 gift from Mr. Albert Scaglione, founder and CEO of the Park West Gallery in Southfield, Michigan. Framing of these prints was funded by the Candace Smith Fund and Besser Museum's Non-Juried Art Exhibit, Best Foot. Shown here as a group for the first time, the Besser Museum is pleased to share the work of this internationally known artist with the community and visitors to Northeast Michigan.
