The School of Art & Art History is deeply saddened to announce the unexpected loss of our treasured colleague, emeritus professor Lawrence Argent this Wednesday, October 4. With a career of over 20 years at the University of Denver’s School of Art & Art History, he brought great skill and passion to his teaching, while his international reputation as a sculptor grew at an ever-increasing pace. He was a leader in his field, and he will be missed. You can learn more about Lawrence’s career and artworks on his website, where you will recognize his famous I See What You Mean, fondly nicknamed “The Blue Bear.” Statements from a few of his colleagues and friends can be found on the School of Art and Art History main site. 

More information on his obituary can be found in the New York Times, the Washington Post, and Westword.
