Artist Lecture: Dario Robleto says
"Southern Accent" artist Dario Robleto will discuss his artwork, "A Defeated Soldier Wishes to Walk His Daughter Down the Wedding Aisle," and how it connects to his artistic practice. Based in Houston, Texas, Robleto considers himself a “materialist poet” whose sculptures explore the social and emotional resonance of materials, songs, history, and shared memories. His research-driven practice results in intricate objects that reflect his interests in music, popular culture, science, war, empathy, and the cosmos. In 2016 he was appointed the Texas State Artist Laureate.
