Curator’s Choice – Achieving American Art

June 10, 2009
Wednesday, June 10, 1 p.m.
Farnsworth Main Lobby

Director of Education Roger Dell will present a special Curator’s Choice Gallery Talk in conjunction with the From Future to Future series and the Achieving American Art—American Art Between the Wars exhibition.

The sixth gallery talk in the series will explore Marguerite Zorach’s majestic oil painting “Land and Development of New England” (c.1935). Eight feet by six feet and a half, Zorach’s canvas is a resume of an artist’s various visions of New England.

Standing before this work of art, Dell will link this talk directly to topics explored in the June lectures using the Farnsworth’s collection as the foundation for dialogue. There will be ample time for questions and discussion.

Seating: limited to 20 people
Cost: free with museum admission
