Heroines of Abstract Expressionism
The American mid 20th century women painters who created art alongside their male partners and contemporaries were rarely given the recognition they deserved but have since been reexamined and have been rightly installed alongside the men who received all the critical acclaim in their day. Art history Professor Thomas Germano will teach us new ways of looking at the work of "Ninth Street Painters": Elaine deKooning, Lee Krasner, Helen Frankenthaler, Joan Mitchell and Grace Hartigan as well Hedda Sterne, Louise Nevelson, Jane Freilicher, Dorothy Dehner, Biala and Mercedes Matter.
Note: This talk replaces Art and Everyday Life which will be re-scheduled at a later date.
OMG WTF Does the Constitution Actually Say?
Do you know what the Constitution ACTUALLY says? What about how the government is supposed to work? Author Ben Sheehan, former award-winning executive producer at Funny or Die and political savant will explain it all, from presidential powers to Supreme Court nominations, from the preamble to the final amendment. He will also unpack the constitutional issues surrounding recent events. (And, OMG WTF refers to Ohio, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin, Texas and Florida.)*
