TAM Docents: More Lectures at the Student Rate!

Hello Docents-

In addition to the Know More Art Lectures, you can get student rates on the lectures below as well!

The Lavender Palette: Gay Northwest Artists in the Early 20th Century
Saturday, March 24, 1 pm
The reputations of many gay artists have suffered due to the lack of extant material, which is often destroyed by embarrassed family members or friends after their deaths. Lecturer David Martin has done extensive investigation into this subject over the past 20 years and uncovered important material. In this lecture, he shines a lens on gay, lesbian, and bisexual artists who were active in Washington State before 1960. Although these artists achieved local and even national recognition during their lifetime, their personal lives have rarely, if ever, been discussed, and most of the gay-oriented works by these artists that Martin will reveal have never before been seen by the public.
Cost: $15 ($10 for members, $5 for students). Includes museum admission. tickets

 David Wojnarowicz: What’s All the Fuss About?
Saturday, April 28, 3 pm

David Wojnarowicz was a painter, photographer, writer, filmmaker, performance artist, and activist who was prominent in the New York City art world of the 1980s. Dan Cameron, Chief Curator of Orange County Museum of Art and former Senior Curator at the New Museum in New York, will present on this fascinating artist. A book signing of Fever: The Art of David Wojnarowicz will follow the lecture.
Cost: $15 ($10 for members, $5 for students). Includes museum admission. tickets
