Marguerite Elliot and Emeritus Professor Daniel Segal will discuss Elliot’s transformative time at Pitzer, her subsequent work with The Women’s Building and feminist art movement in Los Angeles in the 1970s – 1980s, and ongoing environmentally-focused public sculpture practice.
Works from her Sentinels series are installed in Pitzer’s Holden Garden through June 2024.
