This event has been rescheduled from its original date to October 1.
Join writer Jane Blunschi for the fourth in a series of talks that explore the works and lives of LGBTQ+ artists in the museum’s permanent collection. This series will feature one conversation per month, beginning with Pride month in June and culminating with Gay History Month in October.
Inspiration takes center stage in September, with the works of painter Marsden Hartley as our focus. Hartley spent his life searching for a place to belong, a quest that led to mentorship and community among some of the foremost creative minds of the early twentieth century. We’ll discuss those influences in his paintings, which reflect the landscapes and ideas that shaped his life personally and creatively, and explore the sources of unexpected and dearly held inspiration in our own lives.
Free, no tickets required.
