Session 2: Beyond Sunsets: poetry and metaphor in the landscape

Artists have long depicted natural scenery, including mountains, valleys, coastlines, fields, and forests. In this session, we will discuss the making and meaning of art that moves beyond documentation of place to investigate broader concepts within the landscape including social, political, environmental, and cultural influences.

Making and Meaning, is a public engagement opportunity in which patrons can learn about the history of art through topical virtual lectures. Each session will be 90 minutes in length, with approximately 60 minutes of lecture/slide presentation/video and 30 minutes of Q&A. The content of each session will be geared to excite participants about art history in a way that moves past traditional Western-centered surveys and invites viewers to consider the context of the works discussed. All sessions are online Via Zoom. Registration Required*
