After the concert, attendees strolled down to the Education Pavilion for the artist’s talk, illustrated with slides from various phases of his impressive career. “All borders are open tonight,” Galindo said. “We are all together because of what has happened and what is coming.”
The talk was enlightening, but the real joy of the evening was the concert—a fabulous opportunity to see and hear Galindo’s sculptures come alive.
Guillermo Gallindo will be in studio at Lux through July 31. His artworks will be on view through August 7.
