Looking and Lunching: Picturing Berenice Abbott


October 17, 2019

12:00 PM-1:00 PM

Clark Center

Take a closer look at the Clark’s collection during Looking and Lunching, a half hour of discussion focusing on one work from the collection followed by continued discussion over lunch with the presenter and fellow art lovers in the Carswell Room. This month, join Andrew Kensett, Williams GradArt ’20, as he discusses a recently acquired cache of portraits by Modernist photographer Berenice Abbott. While living in Paris in the ‘20s, Abbott photographed luminaries such as James Joyce, Edna St. Vincent Millay, and Coco Chanel.

Free with gallery admission. Plan to arrive early to pre-order and purchase your meal, or bring your own lunch. Limited seating available. Meet at the admissions desk in the Clark Center.
