Golden West to Offer Arts Celebration

SPECIAL TO THE TIMES

A lecture by abstract artist Laddie John Dill and a film on Andy Warhol's works highlight this year's Art Week celebration beginning Monday at Golden West College.

The five-day celebration of the arts will feature the most activities ever for this annual event and will include lectures and other presentations by artists and Golden West instructors. Admission to all events, except for a barbecue lunch, is free.

Dill, a renowned Los Angeles-based artist, is scheduled to discuss his work at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the college's theater.

During the past 25 years, Dill has explored new areas of room environment art, often using entire gallery spaces for a single piece. His work often includes cement, sand and natural oxides to present colors as they exist in nature.

The hourlong documentary film "Andy Warhol" will screen Friday at 2 p.m. in Room 210 of the campus's Fine Arts Building.

For additional information, call the college's Visual Arts Office at (714) 895-8772.
