TAM Docents: Hide/Seek Podcasts from the National Gallery

Hello Docents-

Below are a couple of podcasts that tie into the Hide/Seek exhibition from the National Gallery website. Interesting stuff.

I placed an order for the Hide/Seek catalog today so that we will have the opportunity to start the readings therein. If you have ideas about what you would like to see in terms of training opportunities for this and other upcoming exhibitions, I am working on training calendars now and your feedback would gladly be taken into consideration as I move forward on that.


"hide/SPEAK" Panel Discussion at DCJCC
December 30, 2010

A conversation with David C. Ward, co-curator of "Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture." Presented by the Washington DC Jewish Community Center in collaboration with Catherine V.

(109:42 min) Crane portrait by Marsden Hartley, Face-to-Face talk
January 11, 2011

David C. Ward, historian and co-curator of "Hide/Seek," discusses Marsden Hartley's portrait of Hart Crane titled Eight Bells Folly: Memorial to Hart Crane. Recorded at NPG, January 6, 2011."

(18:48 min)

It is not clear whether this piece will be included in the exhibition here yet but I included it because there is some interesting information that could still be useful in regards to Marsden Hartley.



Thank you for all that you do for Tacoma Art Museum!
