In anticipation of Natural Forces: Winslow Homer and Frederic Remington (opening March 15, 2020), the Petrie Institute of Western American Art's annual symposium will consider the unlikely pairing of Winslow Homer, known for his depictions of rocky Eastern coastlines, and Frederic Remington, famous for his vision of the American West.
Despite their different subject matters, unexpected resonances emerge when their work is put into conversation. Touted as "self-taught" and "home grown," these artists produced work that reinforced a distinct sense of American identity rooted in action, self-reliance, and a relationship with the wilderness.
Join moderator Patty Limerick of the University of Colorado and speakers Thomas Smith and Jennifer Henneman of the Denver Art Museum, Diana Greenwold of the Portland Museum of Art, Maggie Adler of the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, and Mark Thistlethwaite of Texas Christian University for this exploration.
Doors open at 9 am.
Tickets are $45 for Museum Friends, $20 for students, $55 for DAM membersm and $65 for nonmembers.
Museum Friends Presale begins on Nov. 27. All other tickets go on sale on Nov. 29.
