(William + Lecture + Free) x 2
Two Lectures this weekend to satisfy your critical cravings....
A Voice in the Crowd: The Art Exhibit and the Citizen by William Ray
Ray, Reed College Professor of French and Humanities, will present a talk on
the roles that public art exhibitions and museums have played in the formation
of the modern citizen, exploring "how the enjoyment of art introduced the
larger public to practices of self-expression and consensus that were crucial
to the development of modern citizenship and representative government."
The lecture is followed by a reception in the newly restored Field Ballroom
of the Mark Building. Hey, why not?

African American Vernacular Art: A Secret Language, A Hidden Tradition
by William Arnett
Arnett will lecture on the often-overlooked aesthetic traditions of Black art
in the American South with particular attention to the Quilts of Gee’s
Bend, which demonstrate a sophisticated color play evocative of 20th century
abstract painters. Quilters Mary Lee Bendolph and Louisiana Bendolph will be
in attendance. The original quilts were exhibited at Liz Leach last June.
