The Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture presents a book launch event to celebrate the publication of Oletha DeVane: Spectrum of Light and Spirit. The book, which examines fifty years of DeVane’s energetic, interactive sculptures, paintings and works on paper, is edited by Lowery Stokes Sims and Symmes Gardner, with a foreword by Rebecca Uchill, and text by Leslie King-Hammond, Christopher Kojzar, Serubiri Moses, Oletha DeVane, Tadia Rice, Lowery Stokes Sims, and Symmes Gardner.

Maryland-based artist Oletha DeVane (born 1952) has long been a prominent presence in the Baltimore-area art scene, working in all media, including public sculpture. Spectrum of Light and Spirit documents the first full retrospective of her work, from early paintings to video artworks and interactive sculpture, which was on display at the CADVC in fall 2022.

This webinar book launch will feature Oletha DeVane, Lowery Stokes Sims, Christopher Kojzar, and Serubiri Moses.

A full PDF version of Oletha DeVane: Spectrum of Light and Spirit is available here. The printed version  is available for pre-order now through D.A.P.

Admission is free. Please join this online event here via Google Meet.
