GALLERY TALK: Currier & Ives: A Curatorial Overview
$10 (members $8) • spaces limited, fee does not include Museum Admission
with Amy Kurtz Lansing, Curator
Join Curator Kurtz Lansing to survey the themes of Country Life, Hunting, Politics and History, Sport, and Urbanization through a sampling of prints from the exhibition. Currier & Ives’s works have left their mark on American identity, and their dominance of visual culture in this country over many decades holds intriguing parallels to digital images spread by the internet today.
