Artist Conversation: Tobi Kahn

Hear artist Tobi Kahn in conversation with his daughter, writer and journalist Mattie Kahn, about the spiritual dimensions of his painting practice. Tobi Kahn’s OHRA (2000-03), a recent gift by members of the Blaffer family to Public Art UHS, is on view in the Health and Biomedical Sciences Center Building at UH. Comprised of seven panels, OHRA was created for a non-denominational chapel in the master-planned village of New Harmony, Indiana. Although the chapel was never completed, Kahn’s hope is that this work brings inspiration to the campus community: “Art can be in a place where students, doctors, people who need health care, can be uplifted.” Please join us for a reception and light refreshments before the program begins.
