Lunchtime Gallery Series with Princeton University Art Museum
October 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
WWAC and Princeton University Art Museum come together for an exciting and engaging series showcasing some of the Museum’s outstanding collections.
Each session is led by a docent of the museum. Topics range from Contemporary African American Artist, the genesis of the Abstract Expressionist Movement and more. The docent program at Princeton University Art Museum involves an intensive, one-and-a-half year training program, consisting of lectures, gallery sessions, research, and presentations to fellow trainees and other docents. Docents then continue their education throughout their years of service by attending docent meetings, participating in study groups, attending gallery talks, and taking trips with fellow docents to other regional museums.
Fall Session – Contemporary Art from the Collection of PUAM
Session 1 – Oct 14, 2020 at 1pm: Contemporary African American Artists in PUAM Collection
This presentation will focus on the current work of African American artists in the collection of PUAM that seeks to address today’s social, political, and cultural issues and aesthetics. The session will be led by Adria Sherman. After her career as a professor of Nutritional Sciences, Adria became a docent at PUAM in 2014. This allows her to combine lifelong interests in art, teaching to individuals of all ages, and provides inspiration for her practice in textile arts.
