Second SITE: In Conversation
Please join Matt Neff and guests TJ Ghose, Keir Johnstonand Tukufu Zuberi for a conversation about historical and contemporary issues of race, community and art in America. The discussion will focus on the work of artist Terry Adkins (1953 - 2014), and the print folio The Philadelphia Negro Reconsidered, he created with The Common Press, as a response to W.E.B. Du Bois' 1899 investigation of Philadelphia's 7th Ward, which is currently on view at The Print Center. The folio features an "interview" between Zuberi, The Lasry Family Professor of Race Relations and Professor of Sociology and Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, and Du Bois. Presented in conjunction with Matt Neff: Second SITE.
Open Door offers unique behind-the-scenes tours at Philadelphia’s most intriguing cultural sites to our audience.
Join us at the La Salle University Art Museum for a guided tour of the current exhibition American Scenes: WPA-Era Prints of the 1930s and 1940s, led by curators Klare Scarborough and Carmen Vendelin. Featuring Works Progress Administration (WPA) prints from the permanent collection of the La Salle University Art Museum and borrowed from the Print and Picture Collection of the Free Library of Philadelphia, the exhibition tells the story of rural and urban life, of industrialization and hard times. Printmakers represented in this exhibition include Thomas Hart Benton, Dox Thrash, Charlotte Angus, Elizabeth Banks, Bessie Rigrodsky, Edward Palmer, Horatio Forjohn, Michael Gallagher, Raymond Steth, Benton Spruance and Hale Woodruff.
The Art Museum opened its doors to the general public in fall of 1975 and became the only university-run art museum in the Philadelphia area to offer a permanent display of European and American paintings, sculptures and works on paper from the Renaissance to the present. Non-Western artworks include Pre-Columbian and Ancient Greek ceramic vessels and Tanagra figurines, African sculptures, Indian miniature paintings and drawings and Asian ceramics.
