May 2016 Scholars Gild Discussion

The Concept and Inspiration at the Foundation

Tuesday, May 17
Lower Arden Gild Hall
7:30 PM

Rick Rothrock, Sculpture

The Ardens have a history rich in the arts and crafts, theater, music, and a love of nature. Adding to this history, on May 14, a carved marble sculpture by Rick Rothrock will be unveiled in the Moonlight Theater at the Arden Gild Hall. This new sculpture, a gift from Sally and Aaron Hamburger to the community, is made of stone from the same quarries that provided the marble for the National Archive Building, the Jefferson Memorial, and the White House.

On Tuesday evening, May 17, at the Scholars Gild discussion, Rick Rothrock will describe his art practice, the concept and inspiration for making the new piece, and the relationship between the piece and the surrounding environment. All are invited to attend and join in what promises to be a very interesting discussion. There is no fee for attending Scholars Gild discussions; please consider making a donation at the door to help cover the costs of putting on these events and to support the Arden Club.
