Helen Park Bigelow: Remembering David Park
The Richmond Art Center was proud to host a public presentation about the artist David Park’s work and life by his daughter, Helen Park Bigelow. In this deep and touching presentation, Ms. Bigelow shared some of her earliest memories of her father, their family life and the community of artists that surrounded the Park family, his transition from Abstract Expressionism to Figuration, and his work up until his death at age 49.
The Main Gallery was full to capacity, and the presentation included a slide how and an opportunity for attendees to purchase Ms. Bigelow’s new book about her father, David Park: Painter, published by Counterpoint Press.
We hope you will join us for other outstanding events that coincide with David Park: Personal Perspectives and the companion exhibition The Human Spirit: Contemporary Figuration as an Expression of Humanism. Please view our Event Calendar for the entire series. The next presentation, Being Human: A Performance by Allan DeSouza, will take place on April 10 and is free to the public
