[ details ] Short Course: American Artists’ Views of the First World War
@ 12:00 PM — 1:00 PM
More Information
Many artists represented in the Museum collection lived through the First World War, including Kelly Fitzpatrick, Marsden Hartley, Childe Hassam, Georgia O'Keeffe, John Singer Sargent, and the Canadian Kerr Eby. Some saw combat and each influenced our perspective in some way regarding how we see our world, our country, and our involvement in the unprecedented global conflict. The Short Course taught by Curator Art Dr. Michael Panhorst and Curator of Educator Alice Novak will consider the ways in which art was shaped by the war and will reference peacetime works by the artists in focus. The series will draw heavily on scholarship around the exhbition World War I and American Art, which was organized by the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and opens at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts in Nashville on October 6. .
