Good books are even better when you discuss them with others. Join the Chrysler Book Club on Zoom to talk about, Old in Art School: A Memoir of Starting Over by Nell Irving Painter. Seth Feman, Deputy Director for Art and Interpretation and Curator of Photography, will lead the discussion.
Following her retirement from Princeton University, celebrated historian Dr. Nell Irvin Painter surprised everyone in her life by returning to school—in her sixties—to earn a BFA and MFA in painting. In Old in Art School, she travels from her beloved Newark to the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design; finds meaning in the artists she loves, even as she comes to understand how they may be undervalued; and struggles with the unstable balance between the pursuit of art and the inevitable, sometimes painful demands of a life fully lived.
