Some Boys, a Few Bunnies, and One Lousy Unicorn: Sculptures by Alex Podesta

October 13

New Orleans-based sculptor Alex Podesta has a lifelong fascination with bunnies. When he was a child, he would wear a pair of footed bunny pajamas and imagine himself taking on the witty and clever persona of Bugs Bunny, one of his favorite cartoon characters. Pretending he was Bugs, Podesta would embark on all manner of real and imagined adventures—and now, these antics make appearances in Podesta’s artwork in the form of carefully-crafted sculptural self-portraits. A long look at Podesta’s work first reveals a playful whimsy, that develops into darker themes of isolation and the loss of youth that comes with growing older. A meet the artist event with activities, gallery games, and refreshments will take place at 6 pm October 14. lsumoa.org.
