Join FUAM’s Executive Director Carey Weber as she interviews artist Howard Skrill and discusses his exhibition “Howard Skrill: Monumental Follies.”
“Howard Skrill: Monumental Follies” (on view at fairfield.edu/museum/skrill) features over thirty works that explore the impact of public monuments, as well as their removal, and their absence. Skrill is an artist and art professor at St. Francis College, Brooklyn, NY and Essex College in Newark, NJ. He has exhibited extensively throughout New England, and his pictorial essays and other works have appeared in publications worldwide. In his drawings and paintings, Skrill documents figurative public statuary, surveys their destruction or relocation, and explores the fractured nature of personal and public memory, as well as the contemporary reaction to these historical works.
