Creative Arts Center presents Robert Pollock: "From Nine to Ninety"
Creative Arts Center of Dallas will present an exhibition of 19 contemporary sculptures from sculptor Rob Pollock, a long-time student at CAC who studied under the school's founder Octavio Medellin. “From Nine to Ninety: A Retrospective of the Sculpture of Robert Pollock” is presented in collaboration with the Moody Performance Hall.
Although Pollock does not describe himself as an artist, the nonagenarian has been creating art since he was 9 years old. His artistic journey began in Dallas, where as a young boy he worked in copper and pewter, learning to cut, shape with a hammer and soldering pieces, such as ash trays and matchbox covers. In the summer of 1943 while visiting in La Jolla, California, he took a class in linoleum block printing at the La Jolla Museum of Art.
Following the artist reception, the exhibit will be on view through June 17.
