Keith and Nadine Pierce Lecture on American Art featuring Charles Brock, George Bellows: Art and Politics
April 24, 2022
Location: CMA & Online
Join us to explore the evolution of George Bellows’ political identity. The artist famously described his youth as "surrounded by Republicans" in Columbus. He then went on to illustrate for the socialist magazine The Masses in New York and, later, to support America's entry into World War I in 1917. Art and politics intersected in complex, sometimes contradictory ways throughout his brief but full life. This program is free with registration.
