Join us as we take you on a tour of the World's Greatest Paintings! 

Great paintings challenge us to understand them, to penetrate their mysteries, and to appreciate their riches. But within the vast history of art, there exist only a small number of paintings that transcend the traditional role of art to become cultural signifiers—works that allow us to comprehend more deeply the world and our place within it.

This video lecture series will take place over 8 weeks; come for all 8 pieces or just choose your favorite artist's portion!

rec_paintpalette 2:00 PM Rockwell & Wyeth: the Great American Storytellers Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Swarthmore Public Library   6105430436   swarthmore@delcolibraries.org
   

                  

Presented by Fred Dixon, this art lecture will examine what makes Norman Rockwell and Andrew Wyeth two artists beloved by the public, but often attacked by the critics. Hear how Rockwell painted, with a sense of whimsy, the qualities one would like to see society return to. Wyeth was accused of being a hopelessly sentimental painter of rural scenes, but Fred Dixon will argue that the critics never completely understood his work. Often he takes you beneath the surface of realism and doesn’t spell it out for us.

Fred and his wife Martha were long term docents at the Barnes Foundation. They have collected art for 35 years and have traveled to many of the most important museums in the U.S. and Europe and cathedrals in Italy to view Renaissance and Baroque art. Fred’s book “700 years of Art History : Pre-Renaissance to Modernism” will be available at  this event at a discounted price of $35.

Please register.

Reel Time Film Classics presents

Amadeus

This is the incredible story of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Tom Hulce) as told by his peer and secret rival, Italian composer Antonio Salieri(F. Murray Abraham).  Set in the latter half the 18th century, this fictional account of Mozart’s life is set against the soundtrack of Mozart’s beloved works, making the film a feast for the senses.  Based on the stage play by Peter Shaffer that was translated into a critically acclaimed film in 1984 by director Milos Forman, the movie garnered 8 Academy Awards, including one for Best Picture. Amadeus remains a perennial favorite of viewers and critics alike.

Children can come to the library and practice reading to the best listener - a dog! Three therapy dog teams will be at the Swarthmore Public Library to meet with beginning and reluctant readers and to listen to children (Kindergartners and older) read a book of their choice. This is also an ideal opportunity for English language learners. 

This very popular program is held two Thursdays each month. Registration required. Each child will get a time slot within the 6:30-7:30 window. Email Mr. Scott at swcsd@delcolibraries.org to request a specific time.
