ONLINE: Looking at Art: Modern to Contemporary with Megan Hinton

November 17th, 24th, December 1st, 8th, and 15th | Wednesdays 10am – 11:15am | 5 sessions | $140 for members, $150 for non-members

This series of slide talks will explore the shift from Modern to Contemporary Art from approximately 1950 to the present day. The five weekly lectures will act as a time line to investigate Modern Art and how it transitioned to define the Contemporary.  A presentation of innovations, shifts, and trends of late 20th to early 21st Century Art will give the artist and art lover a better understanding of recent art history.  Significant American and international artists will be presented with a diverse approach emphasizing multicultural, queer, women, and artists of color. Each slide talk will be approximately 40 minutes followed by a discussion period for questions and comments.
