Artbreak: Van Gogh to the Countryside
October 29, 2019
University of South Carolina history professor Carol Harrison leads the discussion on how 19th-century French artists idealized rural society just as industrialization was transforming the French countryside. The painters Van Gogh studied commemorated this world and shaped his responses to modernization. Begin the morning at the museum at 10:30 a.m. with pastries and coffee sold at a pop-up café from Curiosity Coffee Bar. Program starts at 11:00 a.m.
ArtBreak is a program that looks at art through a different lens. Each session features a speaker who gives insight into their worldview by sharing their interpretation of works of art at the CMA.
Free with membership or Van Gogh admission.
