Go, Van Gogh! ~ Virtual Program for AdultsThursday May 6, 2021

Pastor and painter Vincent van Gogh produced more than 2,000 works of art in his last decade. Van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo that, as he had no children, he viewed his paintings as his progeny. Mike Norris, PhD in Art History, will guide you on an exploration of some of these "brilliant children," especially those at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Registration begins April 8, online or by calling the library’s Reference Department at 860-652-7720. Registration with a valid email address is required in order to receive login information on the day of the Zoom meeting.
