Donald Lipski

The first meeting of the Society for Contemporary Art will feature an evening with Donald Lipski. Sculptor Donald Lipski, presently living in New York, was born in Chicago in 1947. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin and his Master of Fine Arts from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. He was an assistant professor of art at the University of Oklahoma from 1973-77. He has exhibited in numerous shows both in the United States and abroad, and has been the recipient of National Endowment for the Arts awards. His works can be seen in many private and public collections including most recently, the “Sculpture Inside Outside” at the Walker Art Center. Mr. Lipski assembles and transforms common objects and scraps into remarkably inventive sculptures which take on new, evocative meanings. His use of rubber bands, test tubes, telephone parts, tires, electrical parts and surplus military parts compose only a small list of the materials he scavenges. Lipski combines wraps, twists or interlocks these materials to create a novel image out of many ordinary objects.
