Professor Dorothy Keller will discuss Homer’s works and related themes at a lunch program on August 3, 2017.
The Mattatuck Museum, located in Waterbury, Conn., will celebrate the life of Winslow Homer in the exhibit “Winslow Homer: American Life 1857-1875” on display from July 30–Sept. 3, 2017.
On Thursday, August 3, Dorothy Keller, professor of art history at USJ, will speak at the museum’s Lunch & Learn session “An American Icon: Winslow Homer – A Personal Interpretation.” from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. During the talk, she will discuss themes about women, outdoor life, and the sea, and provide insights about printing methods.
“This major exhibition provides me with the unique opportunity to share and to clearly demonstrate how Homer’s works created during the 19th century contain a genuine and sincere message and learning opportunity for the 21st century viewer to relate to, ponder, and experience,” said Keller. “These vital creations provide vibrant connections and contain a specific and sincere message related to the human spirit and project common human shared values which are as fresh today and are still treasured as they have been in the past.”
