Libros Schmibros Book Club
Libros Schmibros co-directors David Kipen and Colleen Jaurretche lead monthly convenings focused on books related to the exhibition A Strange Magic: Gustave Moreau’s Salome.
This month’s book:
The Pre-Raphaelites and their Circle: From luminous painting to lushly sensual poetry, the Pre-Raphaelites brought together the art and philosophy of the 19th century in poetry that anticipates modernist narrative and theme. (Cecil Lang, ed., University of Chicago)
ALL HAMMER PUBLIC PROGRAMS ARE FREE.
Parking is available under the museum for $3 after 6:00pm.
Part of the curatorial department, the Public Engagement program collaborates with artists to develop and present works that create an exchange among the artist, the museum, and the visitor. Enacted both inside and outside the galleries, Public Engagement projects range from re-envisioned security guard uniforms to library and orchestra residencies. Public Engagement was established in 2009 thanks to a James Irvine Foundation Arts Innovation Fund grant.
