For Immediate Release:|
IN THE "AMERICAN ICONS" LECTURE SERIES, STARTING FEBRUARY 1
Featured works to include Christina's World, American Gothic and The Gross Clinic
This fascinating, five-part lecture series will provide a college-level introduction to American art of the late 19th and early 20th centuries in the context of the evolution of American culture and national identity.
"When we ask the right questions, works of art can tell us a great deal about the society that created them. They are gateways to understanding life in another era," says Amanda C. Burdan, assistant curator, who will present the lectures. "Each of these works is a reflection of the period in which it was created."
