Artist's Eye Lecture: Joan Son on the Byzantine Fresco Chapel

The Artist's Eye is a series of informal lectures/discussions that invite a Texas artist to talk about work in the Menil Collection that holds a special meaning for him or her.

Joan Son is best known for her work in paper folding. She debuted her art in the windows of Tiffany & Co. in the spring of 1993. She has created numerous large-scale installations for public and private venues, as well as small works for museum shops, including the National Gallery of Art and the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. Her work seeks the mystical in the simple — from a single fold to a thousand folded butterflies.
