Philadelphia-Based Artist to Present Talk on
Public Art Nov. 2 at MCCC


West Windsor, N.J. - Conceptual artist Tim Eads will discuss his foray into public art and other artistic musings in his talk "Investigations into Nothingness" on Wednesday, Nov. 2 at noon at Mercer County Community College. This free lecture is open to the public and will be presented in the Communications Building, CM 109, on the West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. The talk is part of Mercer's Distinguished Lecture Series for the fall 2011 semester.

The Texas native is known for his highly interactive pieces, which reflect his unique perspectives on the beauty of simple things, the joy of tinkering, and how much fun art can be. Eads' viewer-powered butter churn and toast maker are prime examples of how he engages audiences in the creative process.

Eads is currently a project technician and printer at The Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia. He earned his M.F.A. from Cranbrook Academy of Art. His work has been featured in several exhibitions, most recently at the Museum of New Art in Detroit, Jolie Laide and Pentimenti Galleries in Philadelphia, and the Arthouse at Jones Center in Austin, Texas. He has served as a visiting lecturer of sculpture at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
