Joe Forkan

Joe Forkan, whose Staggering Heights comic once graced the pages of the Tucson Weekly, returned home to the UA Museum of Art, 10 31 N. Olive Road, with a new series of paintings and drawings, The Lebowski Cycle, which, in Forkan's words are "layered narratives, using masterpieces of European art and the 1998 Coen Brothers' film The Big Lebowski as a starting point. The series is the result of a longstanding interest in narrative painting, particularly paintings from the Baroque and Neoclassical eras: complex figurative works that depict grand story arcs, and compress a multitude of thoughts, ideas and emotions into a singular image." The reception is Thursday, June 2, 5 to 7 p.m. The show closes Sept. 25. $10 suggested donation to benefit the museum exhibitions and programs, but free for museum members, students, UA fauculty and staff and anyone with a military or tribal ID.
