Eating, Shopping, Dancing in the Big City: Coronavirus Edition American Artists on the Town, 1820-1940
December 1, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 3:45 pm EST
Lecture on Zoom
Tuesday, December 1 @ 2:30-3:45pm
2020 has provided us clear vision about the everyday we used to take for granted. Nevermind celebrating life events and joining crowds for urban playtime, simply eating out, shopping, and getting together with family and friends are all a challenge.
Join us for a close look with Rena Tobey at artworks created by American artists from the mid-1800s to the Great Depression.
These works exuberantly depict all those small and larger moments of urban life, and you may find they provide just the refresher you’ve been waiting for.
