LaVar"My Evolution in the Great Basin" By Lavar Steel


My Evolution in the Great Basin - LaVar Steel (1934-2016)
Don't miss this one-time-only memorial exhibition featuring the art of longtime CSI art faculty member LaVar Steel. The show features two- and three-dimensional works from the private collection of his wife, Marian Steel, and will showcase many never-before-exhibited pieces.

LaVar was the first CSI art faculty member hired by Dr. James Taylor in 1966, and he spent the early part of his career teaching most of the art classes offered by the college. LaVar and other art faculty saw the educational value in sharing art with students and the local community through gallery shows, field trips, and studio visits.

LaVar was a master of mediums, just as comfortable with a watercolor brush as he was with chisel, generating a lasting legacy of paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and more. LaVar continued working at CSI, serving as Chair of the Fine Arts Department and President of the Department Chairs during his career. He retired in 1997 and remained active as an artist until his death in 2016.

The exhibit can be viewed any time during normal Herrett Center hours.  Admission to the gallery is always free.
