Free for members! Coffee & Curators invites members to enjoy coffee, refreshments, and the company of other members as one of the Center of the West’s curators speaks on a topic inspired by the Center’s permanent collections.
For our May program, Scarlett Curator of the Whitney Western Art Museum Susan Barnett presents Change and Continuance in Western American Art. The talk (with lots of images) addresses major themes in western American art and how selected artists in today’s West reinterpret these ideas. There are many questions that shape the installations in the Whitney. What and when is the West? How are artists influenced by place? How do fact and fiction interact in art? Who are the people and other beings who inhabit the West? Recent changes in the Museum include a new entry, fresh paint, and updated thematic installations. Barnett discusses the curatorial vision behind the changes.
