Provocative, inventive, and astounding, The Cycle by Cyrus Tilton includes a kinetic installation overflowing with sculptures of locusts in various stages of breeding and development as a metaphor for the dangers of over-consumption. This larger-than-life installation will be discussed by three champions of Tilton’s artwork: gallerist and early supporter Lonnie Lee; Ron Holthuysen of Scientific Art Studio, who trained Cyrus in large-scale sculpture fabrication; and writer and art critic DeWitt Cheng. Cyrus was the inaugural winner of the John S. Knudsen prize, awarded to emerging or mid-career California artists, and his sculpture Lovers will become part of the Crocker’s permanent collection. He passed away last year of cancer at the age of 39.

Conversation and a Q&A with the audience will follow, along with a brief reception to honor the artist.
