An entire universe can be unfolded in a work of art. In a Paris newspaper from January 20th, 1929, Margaret Brown stated:
“Some people find it strange that an American woman should aspire to play the roles of Bernhardt. I recall, too, that some people smirked when I brought home ancient statuary from Egypt and decorated up a few acres of the Rocky Mountains for my home, but I am sure that those who know the place will agree that culture knows no boundaries and that fine arts are international.”
Our program has its roots in Margaret’s love of art and The Parisian Salon. Margaret undoubtedly attended one of these events at the fin-de-siecle. Salons were a profound indicator of what a woman could represent in society: powerful and intellectual.
Join us for a special Art on Penn. In an informal and intimate gallery talk, we will highlight the art of the Molly Brown House Museum. This exclusive program will allow for engaging narratives and elevated conversations that are guided by experts in their fields. You will watch a professional artist create a beautiful piece of art. Our talk will provide context for the featured art but also present points of departure for a deeper dive. It will be a riveting adventure! Join us on the journey.
Afterwards you will create your own art! A take away project with artist instruction will be included. Virtual participants have the choice of providing their own materials, or with more than a week's notice, we can ship everything you'll need. If you're joining us in-person, we'll have your art supplies waiting for you. This is a a program that can be attended either virtually or in-person. A link to join us virtually will be included in your confirmation email.
