Calling all art and museum fanatics—this is the program for you! Works in Progress is an opportunity to learn what museum professionals at the Chrysler Museum are cooking up for visitors. With a distinguished collection of more than 30,000 objects, including one of the great glass collections in America, the Chrysler is on the cutting edge of the art scene. Get juicy backstories and insight about innovative projects, and tantalizing research, and hear about what you can expect next.
Independent, talented, formidable, and undervalued are all words that come to mind when describing the female artists of the Progressive Era. This talk by Corey Piper, Ph.D., the Chrysler’s Brock Curator of American Art, takes you deep into the details of a new project forming certain to shake up established perceptions of Susan Watkins, an acclaimed painter who forged a unique style at the intersection of tradition and innovation, by considering her work in the larger context of the cosmopolitan artistic circles in which she circulated here and in France. A new view of an artist at the vanguard of her profession and gender, this talk is certain to tantalize and offer interesting comparisons and contrasts of unique artists working on both sides of the Atlantic.
