Lecture, Art History 101: Text in Art

Text in Art


Thursday, August 21 at 6:30pm at The Akron Art Museum

In the Charles and Jane Lehner Auditorium

Since the early 20th century, when Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque introduced words into their Cubist still life paintings and collages, artists have incorporated language into their images. This installment of Art history 101 with Chief curator Janice Driesbach will look at the context in which works in “Language in Art” were created and explore ways contemporary artists use text to create engaging visual compositions.

Event is free to the public.
