Rona Pondick is an internationally renowned sculptor whose work has been described by Nancy Princenthal of the New York Times as “a dreamlike melding of human, beast, and steel.” At once beautiful and unsettling, Pondick’s sculptures invite all who see them to contemplate our mortality, to come to terms with the ways our minds and bodies understand what we often think of as our humanity, whether we call it our spirit or soul or something else.

About the Atlantic Lecture Series
The Atlantic Lecture Series was created by Sally Hurt and is supported through the Hurt Foundation for Claremont Graduate University University’s Art Department, with the express desire to bring talented artists from outside Los Angeles to Claremont. This series brings greater exposure of CGU Art to a wider platform of artists and art making, while also giving our students knowledge, discourse, and contacts with prominent artists working today. Since the inception of this lecture series, the art world has expanded into a global network and the meaning of Atlantic has broadened to represent a more inclusive nexus of art production in Europe, Africa and Latin America.
