All members of the community are invited to join us on Thursday, November 14th at 7 p.m. for the annual Lehman Lecture in Beard Hall, Kirby Chapel. This year’s speaker, Barbara Tomlinson, Ph.D., will discuss Native American Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Come learn how the museum is celebrating the achievements of indigenous artists from across North America. The power and beauty of historical Native American art are featured in 116 works now installed in a newly-designed gallery in the museum’s American Wing. New York collectors Charles and Valerie Diker have donated, loaned, and promised many of these works as gifts to the Museum, and the exhibition of these objects, “Art of Native America: The Charles and Valerie Diker Collection,” marks the first time Native works have taken their place in the American Wing—founded in 1924—as representatives of North America's artistic heritage.
The event is open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
The Lehman Lecture was established in 1989 by Emily Lehman Smith ’56 and Gail Lehman Harty ’59 to honor their father and grandfather, noted architects and builders. It brings leading figures in art and design to the Morristown-Beard School campus each year.
