  Focus on Faculty - Darryl Lauster  
(Lectures/Talks)

A 520-Year Conversation

Mr. Lauster will speak about his sculpture, Reach, which was UT Arlington's first commissioned public outdoor scupture. Located on the Janet and Michael Greene Research Quadrangle in front of the Engineering Resaerch Building, the 20-foot-tall sculpture is based on Helical Aerial Screw, Leonardo Da Vinci's 15th-century sketch for a gyroscopic flying machine.
Darryl Lauster is an Assistant Professor of Intermedia/Sculpture at the University of Texas at Arlington. He has exhibited nationally in many museums and galleries. Recipient of the President's Award for Excellence in Teaching. He is the founder of the Samuel Gray Society, an institute dedicated to 18th century American history. His work is based in the research of American history and mythology, and utilizes digital media, printmaking, sculpture and installation.

Focus on Faculty is a Speakers' Series for UT Arlington faculty, begun during 2002-2003 to provide a forum for outstanding faculty to share their research and achievements with students, faculty and staff of this campus and with the citizens of Arlington. Speakers are invited who have received major awards for research, teaching or service. Six speakers are scheduled each year. A light dessert reception is served.
