Lectures

American Gothic and Other Fables

9/17/2017 / 1:30pm

Barbara Haskell, curator, Whitney Museum of American Art

*Reservations required

This lecture anticipates the Whitney Museum of Art's major retrospective of the beloved artist hailing from Iowa, Grant Wood (1891 – 1941), scheduled for March 2 – June 10, 2018. The Art Center's jointly owned painting with the Minneapolis Institute of Art, The Birthplace of Herbert Hoover, 1931, and the recently acquired preparatory drawing, Sketch No. 3 of the same title are key loans to the Whitney's show. The exhibition, organized under the direction of Curator Barbara Haskell, presents a "revisionist and more complete idea of Wood's achievement, one that takes him out of the confirming limits of the problematic term 'Regionalism' with which he is ceaselessly associated."

Join us for Ms. Haskell's illustrated lecture tracing Grant Wood's life and career.
