Atlanta - Commodore Classroom with Professor Leonard Folgarait
March 16, 2013 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Commodore Classroom: The Atlanta Chapter invites alumni, family and friends to a special event with Vanderbilt Art History Professor Leonard Folgarait.
"Kahlo and Rivera: An Artistic Partnership""
Frida & Diego positions the artists' work within the political and artistic contexts of their time. Their art speaks of a fierce loyalty to and pride in Mexico, the ideals of the 1910 Mexican Revolution and their commitment to the conditions of the common man.
Professor Folgarait will deliver a lecture to put the exhibit and its artists into context. After his presentation, we'll view the exhibit's paintings, sculptures and works by Frida & Diego by using the knowledge and insight we have gained.
Cost: $20 per person
(includes lecture, admission to the exhibition, and a $5 gift card to the museum cafe.)
High Museum members are free, but registration is required. Please provide your Member Number when you register.
