Tuesday Tea Talks
Join us on the second Tuesday of each month to hear a wide range of gallery talks that highlight works in the permanent collection or in current exhibitions. All talks begin at 2:30 pm and are followed by tea and light refreshments in the East Gallery.
February 11—Sarah McLusky, curatorial assistant in the Office of Academic Programs, focuses on the 1629 painting Portrait of a Botanist, examining it through the lens of botany and medicine in 17th-century Europe.
March 11—Johnny Coleman, professor of studio art and African American studies, examines the life and career of self-taught Cleveland artist Rev. Albert Wagner, as well as other examples of outsider art.
April 8—Thomas Van Nortwick, Nathan A. Greenberg Professor of Classics, discusses the myth of Achilles as seen in two AMAM paintings: Thetis and Achilles at the Oracle and Allegory of the Education of Louis XV.
May 13—The annual Senior Tuesday Tea showcases the scholarship of Oberlin College students. Brenna Larson (OC '14), a graduating senior in Art History, will discuss the complex and unusual iconography in the AMAM's painting "Madonna del Suffragio" by an unknown Italian (Neopolitan) artist. Larson was selected through a competitive call for papers open to all graduating seniors.
