Double Take: The Art of Elizabeth King

  • Virginia Museum of Fine Arts 200 North Boulevard Richmond, VA 23220 (map)

The film Double Take: The Art of Elizabeth King illuminates the aesthetic and engineering questions sculptor Elizabeth King grapples with maintaining an acute sensitivity to both life and the life-like. King is a quiet iconoclast in the art world who has created her own genre. King particularly inspired a generation of younger women artists during her nearly 40 passionate years teaching and nurturing her students in Virginia Commonwealth University’s renowned Sculpture Department.

Elizabeth King will be at the screening in conversation with VMFA Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art Sarah Eckhardt, and the film’s maker Olympia Stone.
