Acclaimed Photographer Zoe Strauss And Other Local Artists To Discuss Van Gogh’s Legacy At The Philadelphia Museum Of Art, April 27
In conjunction with the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s current exhibition, Van Gogh Up Close (on view through May 6), a panel of contemporary artists will discuss the significance and influence of Vincent Van Gogh’s oeuvre on living artists at a special lecture held at the museum Friday evening, April 27.
Featured panelists include the one and only Zoe Strauss (whose photography exhibition, Zoe Strauss: Ten Years, is on view at the Art Museum through this Sunday, April 22), as well as local artist Emily Brown and Hiro Sagakuchi, a local artist and educator who also serves as the Museum’s art handler. Psst: stay tuned for a special Philly 101 video featuring one of these artists…
Together, they’ll engage in an informal conversation about why the great Dutch post-impressionist remains so influential to current artists.
Be sure to get your tickets in advance here.
