Taft Museum of Art: From Winslow Homer to Georgia O’Keeffe

February 20, 10:30am – 2:30pm
Cost: $15 for tour and transportation; lunch is on your own
Walking: Considerable amount

Join us for a docent-led tour of the Taft Museum’s From Winslow Homer to Georgia O’Keeffe exhibit. This fascinating exhibition traces a century of the modern creative spirit in the United States, ranging from realistic landscapes to bold abstract forms. Fifty-five works by American masters—including Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Helen Frankenthaler—span the 1860s through the 1960s. Nineteenth-century landscapes and portraits set the stage for light-filled scenes by the American Impressionists. Carefully structured cityscapes by the American Modernists give way to Cubist-inspired works, and, finally, to colorful experimental paintings by the Abstract Expressionists. We will enjoy lunch at the Taft Café.
RSVP required by February 13.
