American Watercolors, 1880–1990: A Conversation with Richard Tuttle and Exhibition Curators
Join Harvard Art Museums for a discussion about the special exhibition "American Watercolors, 1880–1990: Into the Light," featuring artist Richard Tuttle, who contributed to the exhibition catalogue, as well as members of the curatorial team. On view at Harvard Art Museums from Saturday, May 20 to Sunday, August 13, the exhibition presents more than a hundred compelling and rarely seen watercolors by both well-known and historically underrepresented American artists. All works are drawn from Harvard Art Museums’ deep and diverse holdings. Expanding the canon and including many new acquisitions on view for the first time, the exhibition seeks to inspire conversations and enrich today’s practitioners. The program speakers are curator Joachim Homann, scholar Margaret Morgan Grasselli, curator Miriam Stewart, curator Elisa Germán and conservator Penley Knipe. Admission is free, but seating is limited. Reservations are required and may be arranged by clicking online beginning Saturday, May 13, after 10am.
