Salon Thursdays

Why was the Gilded Age also the Golden Age of collecting European academic art in New York City? Join us on Thursday, June 18th, as Leanne Zalewski explores why this style of art pervaded New York collections—and collections across the United States—and why it comprised the first permanent contemporary art collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Dahesh Museum, years later, benefited from some of these collections. Come to this lecture to find out how! Zalewski is an Assistant Professor of Art History at Randolph College in Lynchburg, Virginia. The lecture is free, and begins at 6:30 pm at the Dahesh Museum of Art Gift Shop.
