Due to public health concerns, the Spring (April and May) Lunch and Learn  presentations with Carol Ehlers have been postponed. Please continue to check our website and events calendar for announcements regarding rescheduled dates. We apologize for the inconvenience.

 

Art Talk Series is from March – November 2020

Mark your calendars for the series of art talks, Introduction to American Art, offered between March and November of 2020. These talks are offered by Carol Ehlers, who is an Art Insights Volunteer for the Art Institute of Chicago and hosted in partnership with the Dubuque Art Museum (Dubuque, IA), Bettendorf Public Library (Bettendorf, IA), and the Butterworth Center (Moline, IL). Carol is also Volunteer Docent at Figge Art Museum (Davenport, IA).

This series of art talks provides information about American Art, in anticipation of touring exhibit, For America: Paintings from the National Academy of Design, that will be on view at the Figge Art Museum beginning in February of 2021. The exhibit offers a unique history of American painting from 1809 to the present day. Due to the size of the exhibit, the Introduction to American Art series will only look at a few select artists from the earlier years featured in the exhibition.
