Keith and Nadine Pierce Lecture on American Art featuring Charles Brock, George Bellows: Art and Politics

April 24, 2022
2:00–3:00 PM

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.
