Gallery Talk

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street
Cambridge MA

Curatorial fellow Natalia Ángeles Vieyra will explore Homer’s 19th-century illustrations of this “mid-winter paradise,” in light of the effects of climate change and unsustainable tourism in the Bahamas today. This talk is offered in conjunction with the exhibition Winslow Homer: Eyewitness, on view at the Harvard Art Museums through January 5, 2020.

Our galleries are full of stories—this series of drop-in talks gives visitors a chance to hear the best ones! The talks highlight new works on view, take a fresh look at old favorites, investigate artists’ materials and techniques, and reveal the latest discoveries by curators, conservators, fellows, visiting artists, technologists, and other contributors.

Offered by:
Natalia Ángeles Vieyra, Maher Curatorial Fellow of American Art
