“In Play” sits on the front lawn of the Glasscock School of Continuing Studies’ Anderson-Clarke Center and was donated by Rice alumni Leslie and Brad Bucher, two Houston arts patrons. Brad Bucher will join Havel in a conversation at the event.

What: An event titled “Joseph Havel: The Artist in Conversation.”

When: 4-5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 12. A reception will follow the discussion.

Installed in spring 2014 at the newly built Anderson-Clarke Center, “In Play” is composed of five sculptures cast of bronze using a fabric form. The permanent sculptures are in two groupings — one on the southwest corner and the other on the northeast corner of the center’s lawn.
