2019 Regional Meeting: Fogg Museum at Harvard University

September 9 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Image of Winslow Homer, "Prisoners from the Front" (1866)

Monday, September 9, 2019 – Join us for a very special afternoon tour of the Harvard Art Museums’ exhibit “Winslow: Homer: Eyewitness” with Ethan Lasser, the Theodore E. Stebbins Jr. Curator of American Art.

Winslow Homer is among the most important American artists of the 19th century and this exhibit will examine the role that his Civil War illustrations that appeared as wood engraved prints in Harper’s Weekly played in his later development as a painter.

In addition, we have been granted special access to the museum’s beautiful Study Center and a selection of American masterpieces of watercolor and prints will be on display just for us. These will include additional works by Homer, plus Edward Hopper, John Sloan, Isabelle Bishop, and Joseph Pennell.

Details: Two groups of 15 people will enjoy an hour with Curator Lasser in the Winslow Homer exhibit and an hour viewing specially selected materials from the Harvard Museums collection in the Study Center. Tours will start promptly at 1:00 pm The Study Center is a secure study space with a check-in process on arrival. Be sure to bring a picture ID with you.

Admission compliments of the Fogg Museum.

Space will be limited to 30 persons (two groups of 15). Please register by email: clayclem@umich.edu
