The campus community is invited to a lecture entitled “Curating from the Other Side” by Holly E. Hughes on Wednesday, April 19 at noon in Regis Room South. Hughes is a curator at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. She will present and share her most memorable experiences as a curator at the gallery.
Hughes recently organized the stunning collection-based exhibitions “Picasso: The Artist and His Models,” “Monet and the Impressionist Revolution, 1860–1910” and “Arp, Miró, Calder.” The current exhibit, “Menagerie: Animals on View,” is Hughes’ engaging presentation of much-loved and some rarely seen works from the gallery’s permanent collection. “Menagerie” offers visitors a captivating view of the innumerable ways in which artists depict animals in their works.
