JUDITH SOBOL, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, IRIS & B. GERALD CANTOR FOUNDATION
Sobol will tell the story of the creation of Iris and B.

She will also explore Rodin’s singular achievement in transforming traditional sculpture into modern sculpture and will explain Rodin’s influence on sculptors working today, 100 years after the death of the master.
