Evening for Educators: The Wyeths and American Art
Discover the art of the Wyeths, one of America’s foremost artistic families. This fascinating exhibition features work by Andrew Wyeth, his father, his sister, and his son, spanning the golden age of illustration to mid-century portraiture. What do works by three generations of Wyeths tell us about the evolution of American art across the twentieth century? How do works by the Wyeths, with their close identification with New England, compare to Northwest art, such as the works featured in Picturing Oregon? Join us for a lively presentation, discussion, and tours.
