Mini-courses for Museum Members, each held on consecutive Tuesdays.
Artists: At Their Word
April 25, May 2 and 9 / 1-3 PM
While some artists are famously mute on the subject of their art, many have been articulate spokespeople for their works through private correspondence and published writings. Hosted in conjunction with Pen to Paper, a special exhibition from the Smithsonian’s Archives of American Art, this mini-course will examine writings by American artists such as Arthur Dove, Robert Motherwell and Grace Hartigan, and the relationships between the artists’ writings and artworks on view. Glenn Tomlinson, William Randolph Hearst Curator of Education, and Adelia Gregory, Associate Curator of Education, are joined by Rachel Gustafson, Curatorial Assistant and Erica Ando, Curatorial Assistant to Education and American Art, to explore this topic through readings and gallery discussions.
