University of Mary Washington’s Great Lives lecture series reveals how extraordinary people - some born to privilege and power, others from modest backgrounds - shaped art, literature, science, government, and the human experience. For painter Gari Melchers, success came during his lifetime but his work was undervalued in the years following his death. In this installment, curator Joanna Catron provides a true assessment of the complexity of Melchers's work and his important place in American painting.
This series is open to the public free of charge and no admission tickets are required. Programs begin at 7:30 pm in Dodd Auditorium in George Washington Hall. Each lecture concludes with an audience Q&A session with the speaker and a book-signing.
Hirschler is pleased to continue its support of the Crawley Great Lives Spring Lecture Series. Learn more about the Gari Melchers installment.
