“Wilderness Tamed, but Paradise Lost: the Nostalgia of the West”
Public presentation by Kathleen Stein, Instructor in Art History and Film and Representation Studies at St. Lawrence University
Wednesday, November 29th, 7pm

Even before revisionist historians questioned the heroic narrative of the “winning” of the West, the best novels and films in the Western genre often expressed ambivalence towards the march of civilization they supposedly celebrated. In this art historical presentation, Kathleen Stein will explore how the first visual expressions of this ambivalence can be found in the works of some early 19th century American landscape painters, and then in the works of the photographers of the western landscape influenced by them.

Art Highlights and Tea Series

The Art Highlights and Tea Series began roughly 16 years ago as a volunteer-led education program. The "art highlights" talks by a great variety of volunteer presenters draw interested audiences every year. the program routinely includes four monthly lectures in January, February, March and April on the second Wednesday of each month.  Lectures begin at 2pm and are always free and open to the public. Tea is served at 3pm. The cost to participate in the tea is $10/person if you’re a Museum member, or $15 if not. We offer a discounted rate if you purchase your tickets in advance for all teas in the series- $35 for members and $40 for non-members.
