Many of us were enchanted and exhilarated by our meeting in February with Susan Talbott, the director of the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art. Here is a chance to hear her "in her element" and visit the museum at no cost. This is part of a city-wide Arts week. For those interested, we can enjoy lunch afterward in the museum cafe. This is a great opportunity to experience something new!
From the museum's website:
Many artists create as a way of exploring the mystical realm, inviting the viewer to contemplate or linger on the image. Susan L. Talbott, Director and CEO, investigates art with spiritual associations ranging from Caravaggio to Bill Viola’s Ascension (2000) that search for meaning through visual form.
As part of Aetna Arts Week, this gallery talk is free.
