Art History Happy Hour

Thursday, March 7, 2019

7–9 pm

Martha A. and Robert S. Rubin Pavilion, 1st Floor

Get a crash course in feminist art history in honor of the special exhibition Half the Picture: A Feminist Look at the Collection with an evening of fun and informative lectures accompanied by wine and beer. This month’s experts—Carmen Hermo, Associate Curator, Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, and artists Alice Neel of Guerrilla Girls and Nayland Blake, whose works are on view in the exhibition—bring a range of experiences to explore the legacies of feminist art. Between lectures, enjoy femme-centered sounds by Elosi, have your portrait drawn by illustrator Lindsay Mound, and indulge in a signature cocktail and treats provided by Butter & Scotch, a local feminist bar and bakery.

Presented in partnership with the Society for the Advancement of Social Studies (SASS).

This event is free, but please RSVP (purchase tickets for Frida Kahlo separately).
