Close Encounters: Jennie Augusta Brownscombe and Kirsten Justesen
While our building is currently closed for renovation, NMWA continues to offer dynamic programs to keep you connected to the museum and our collection. This fall join Deborah Gaston, NMWA’s director of education and interpretation, for four talks that ask, “What questions, conversations, and viewpoints surface when the art historical past meets the present?”
This week’s talk considers narrative art to explore the gendered associations of public and private spaces that shape(d) women’s lives. We will examine Jennie Augusta Brownscombe, Love’s Young Dream (1887) and Kirsten Justesen, Lunch for a Landscape (1975/2009).
