Join us at the San Francisco Public Library for a Letterform Lecture with Hunter Saxony III, aka the Last Black Calligrapher in San Francisco, who will share in this lecture some of his calligraphy and installation work while reflecting on his time in the Bay Area art scene from 2008 to the present.
Letterform Lectures are a public aspect of the Type West postgraduate program. The series is co-presented by the San Francisco Public Library, where events are free and open to all.
Born in Rhode Island, Hunter Saxony III is a self taught San Francisco-based calligraphy and installation artist. His work shows interests in mortality, ritual practices, preservation, loss, and the discovery of self. He uses object, form, and text to investigate and present a delicate but visceral look into the human condition.
