On Wednesday evening, February 15, Montana sculptor Brian Scott will give a lecture about his work as part of the Bozeman Sculpture Park (BSP) Lecture Series.

Brian's lecture will focus on his sculpture in the BSP titled "Persephone: Post-Industrial." Brian has this to say about his 2011 cast aluminum, glass, bloodwood, and steel sculpture.

"I work with many materials: melted aluminum auto parts, steel from the salvage yard or found in a field, melted glass that once was a bottle. Many of these materials are recycled or reused in my work, along with other more traditional materials such as paint.

Although I work in other media, my best-known work is my cast metal and glass totems, and my wall pieces. The defining influence for this piece was its setting in the Bozeman Sculpture Park and its surround area. This piece is organic, industrial and post-industrial."

Brian received his BFA from MSU-Billings. His work is known regionally, nationally and internationally. He will speak about his intention as an artist as well as the process he uses to create and design his contemporary sculptures. Conversation about his sculpture in BSP is strongly encouraged.

A BSP series of lectures by each sculptor whose work is exhibited in the park will take place every 3rd Wednesday of the month through June 2012.

All lectures will be held in the Community Meeting Room of Bozeman Public Library from 7-8 pm followed by a reception for the artist. All lectures in BSP series are free and all are welcome.

Tours of the park are available upon request by contacting BSP at info@bozemansculpturepark.org For further information or to get involved with the Bozeman Sculpture Park, visit the web site at bozemansculpturepark.org.
