George and Emma Bellows: The Music in their Lives The Keith and Nadine Pierce Annual Lecture in American Art
November 7, 2013
Pianist Leslie Amper is the featured performer for this year’s Keith and Nadine Annual Lecture in American Art. During an invigorating musical performance, Amper will offer a slice of the soundtrack to George Bellows’ era. In conjunction with CMA’s exhibition of the works of the American painter and our symposium focusing on the artist’s concerns, the performance by Amper will feature music from the first quarter of the 20th century when George Bellows was active. Selections by George Gershwin, who knew the couple, Chopin, and Charles Ives will also be featured. A conversation about music in the lives of the Bellows family and a screening of D.W. Griffiths’ silent film New York Hat with live accompaniment will follow the performance.
Thanks to the generosity of Keith and Nadine Pierce, this performance is free and open to the public. All are welcome and registration is requested. Please call 614.629.0359 to reserve your seat.
