|Karl Stirner: Transformations - Works in Steel|
Transformations - Works in Steel
A retrospective of the life work of 88-year-old sculptor Karl Stirner of Easton. Stirner's reputation in Lehigh Valley arts, especially in the city of Easton, is immense. There's even a section of the city named for him ? the Karl Stirner Arts Trail. The German-born Stirner started his art career at 23 as a professional drafter and then went on to teach at Tyler School of Art and Moore and Swarthmore colleges. His work has been shown at the Museum of Modern Art, the Corcoran and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, to name a few. Expect to see an exhibition of large- and medium-size steel sculptures and at least a dozen drawings.
