Wheaton Conversations: David King & David Schnuckel

Wheaton Conversations:
David King & David Schnuckel

Watch the June 3, 2021 recording above

David and David both make artworks that extend from a rigorous approach to object making; the results are often impractical and unexpected. Join this conversation as they make an effort to uncover why.

This event is part of “Wheaton Conversations,” a new virtual series highlighting select artists with ties to WheatonArts! To see the full schedule of conversations, Click Here.
