by Stephen Becker 21 Jul 2009 11:05 AM

mb-by-juan-carlos-avendanoMark Bradford, a featured artist in the Dallas Museum of Art’s Private Universes exhibit, will be at the museum on Thursday at 7 p.m. to discuss his work and creative process. Bradford incorporates elements from his daily life into his paintings and sculpture, including scavenged materials such as merchant posters, flyers and advertisements gathered from the streets of Los Angeles. If you go to the talk, be sure to ask him about making Mithra, a 64-foot-long plywood structure he built in New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward.

Tickets are $15, but we’ve got a pair each to the first five people to e-mail me ([email protected]).
