COFFEE & CONVERSATION

FRI, OCT 4 | 10:00AM - 11:00AM 
James Renwick Alliance | 5335 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington DC 20015

All are welcome to join the James Renwick Alliance for our newest program, Coffee & Conversation! Coffee & Conversation is an intimate gathering to meet other craft enthusiasts while learning about artists and contemporary topics in craft. Coffee and tea are available.

The first discussion will feature local artist Michael Enn Sirvet, who will discuss his metalwork in the context of public and corporate commissions. 

Michael Enn Sirvet is a contemporary sculptor, designer and structural engineer who has lived in the DC metro area since 1992 and has been a resident of the city for over fifteen years. Michael’s initial decision to study fine art alongside of his engineering studies was inspired by a visit to the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum here in Washington DC. Keeping up a studio practice on the side of his professional work with a notable DC & NY based structural engineering firm, in 2008 he was awarded a fellowship by a DC based contemporary art gallery which triggered his decision to leave engineering to pursue art full time. Today his work is represented by galleries across America and is in collections around the world. Learn more about the artist on his website: https://sirvet.com
