An Evening with Dietrich Klinge

Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park is honored to host Dietrich Klinge at the11th Annual Charles Schoenknecht & Ward Paul Sculpture Lecture. This is an unusual event for the internationally renowned sculptor and printmaker, who rarely speaks publicly and has never accepted such an opportunity in the United States. An Evening with Dietrich Klinge will offer an intimate and personal public appearance as part of a conversation with Chief Curator and Vice President of Collections and Exhibitions, Joseph Becherer.

RSVP: 616-975-3144 or skilroy@meijergardens.org Captioning service will be provided. This annual lecture is made possible by Charles Schoenknecht and Ward A. Paul.
