Women’s Self Portraits art talk at Main Library on March 11by Carolyn Classen on Mar. 08, 2010, under Arts, Life
Celebrate Women’s Herstory Month during the month of March!
Here’s a Food for Thought lecture at the Joel D. Valdez Main Library:
“Seeing Themselves: Women’s Self Portraits” presented by Tucson Museum of Art docent Vida Thomas.
“Learn more about the skills and lives of women artists from the Middle Ages to the present. Vida Thomas has been a docent at the Tucson Museum of Art for 25 years.”
Thursday March 11, 2010, 12 noon to 1 p.m.
I recently created a collage self-portrait for a Drawing Studio art class. It was illuminating as to how a self portrait can tell a woman’s story about how she views herself. This will be a very interesting talk for adults and teens.
The Joel D. Valdez Main library is at 101 N. Stone, between Alameda and Pennington Streets, downtown. Phone: 520-791-4010.
For those attending the program in the lower level meeting room, a two-hour free parking validation is available for the garage directly below the library. Otherwise bike or walk over, or take the Sun Tran bus. All are invited to bring their lunches for these free programs.
