We strive to offer creative, stimulating events to complement our exhibitions. There might be a gallery talk by an exhibiting artist, our curator or a docent; or a workshop in our art studio; perhaps an exhibition-related lecture, such as when we explored bonsai, ikebana, sushi and saki and the tea ceremony during a kimono exhibit; or when Gee’s Bend quilters performed gospel music, conducted quilting workshops and took the first stitches in a community quilt. See our Calendar for what’s on the schedule.
Author and lecturer Vivian R. Jacobson of Pinehurst, NC, joins us for the sixth year running to present a “Chagallian” lecture devoted to the three major Chagall works created for the city of Chicago: The Four Seasons mosaic at Dearborn and Monroe, the America Windows at The Art Institute of Chicago and the Job tapestry formerly at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and now at the Shirley Ryan Abilitylab. Also included in the discussion are the two famous Chagall paintings on display at the Art Institute of Chicago – the White Crucifixion and The Praying Jew.
Following a Q&A, join Vivian on the Museum Tea Porch for a book sale and signing (cash or check only).
