Second lecture on John Wayne Gacy... TONIGHT...

Like I said two weeks ago in a previous blog post. I want to make it very clear to all of my readers that I am in no way endorsing the John Wayne Gacy art exhibition that will be held at the Arts Factory in September nor currently being held at Sin City Gallery. With that said I do have a responsibility to at least attempt to report about it for those that are interested in the academic dialog that this controversy has caused.

Two weeks ago Dr. Jack Levin from Northwestern University came to Las Vegas to lecture about Serial Killers. His fascinating lecture about the mind of criminals opened many peoples eyes to the nature of these horrific crimes and to the individuals who perpetrated them. http://lvartsandculture.blogspot.com/2011/05/love-it-or-hate-it-john-wayne-gacy-is.html

This evening will be the second lecture to specifically discuss the Gacy "artwork." Dr. David Gussak Chair of the Art Education Department, Associate Professor of Art Therapy, Clinical Coordinator at Florida State University will be deconstructing the work and attempt to explain why Gacy painted what he did. Like the last lecture this one should be equally fascinating.
