Part walking sculpture, part shaman, part urban cult figure, Kim Jones became famous with his “Mudman” alter ego in 1970s Venice Beach. Now living and working in New York City, Jones has become known more recently for his “War Drawings.”
Jones’ work is on view in the current exhibition Left Coast: Recent Acquisitions of Contemporary Art. He will lecture and sign copies of his retrospective catalogue Mudman: The Odyssey of Kim Jones on Sunday, July 27 from 2–3:30pm. For more please see the SBMA website.
