Art Series: Land, People, City
Sunday April 9, 2017
2:00 PM until 3:30 PM
Rena Tobey is back to lead a new art series: Land—People—City
When you think of America, these are the qualities you may think of first. Come explore how American identity has been shaped by images of the land, people, and city with art historian Rena Tobey. In this interactive series of talks, we’ll dig beyond the surface layers that create a streamlined, but simplistic notion of the American character. We’ll take a slow look at paintings that tell complex, often coded stories, reflecting both the challenges and greatness of our country.
