The Beauty of Indiana Folk Arts: Visiting Folk Artists Series–Matt Bruce and Casey Winningham (limestone carvers)

Master carvers Matt Bruce and Casey Winningham will demonstrate and discuss different techniques in limestone carving–a distinctive arts tradition from south-central Indiana.

Winningham carves by hand using a chisel and mallet to craft monuments. Their demonstrations and narrative stage discussions will be free and open to the public, and are sponsored by Themester 2016: Beauty, an initiative of the IU College of Arts and Sciences.

Demonstration: 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.
Discussion: 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
