$7.00 – $10.00

Reception and Lecture: Bon Voyage! Early Caricature Portraits Among the Ashcan School

Welcome the Museum’s new Assistant Curator, Jenny Parsons and hear about her research. Drawing on her recently completed dissertation, Parsons will discuss the ways in which Ashcan School portrait caricatures and photographs often functioned to celebrate, commemorate, or mourn the transition or departure of fellow colleagues between Philadelphia and New York in the 1890s.

A light reception at 6:30pm in Parsons’s honor will precede the event.
