Lecture M. Victor Leventritt Lecture

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street
Cambridge MA

Artist Terry Winters and Carol Mancusi-Ungaro, director of the Harvard Art Museums’ Center for the Technical Study of Modern Art, consider the proposition presented in our current special exhibition, Mark Rothko’s Harvard Murals. Their discussion will focus on the challenges posed by the use of a non-invasive color corrective projection to our understanding of both painting and conservation practice.

The event will be held in Menschel Hall, Lower Level.

Free admission; seating is first come, first served. Please enter the museums via the entrance on Broadway.

Complimentary parking available in the Broadway Garage, 7 Felton Street, in Cambridge.

Support for the lecture is provided by the M. Victor Leventritt Fund, which was established through the generosity of the wife, children, and friends of the late M. Victor Leventritt, Harvard Class of 1935. The purpose of the fund is to present outstanding scholars of the history and theory of art to the Harvard and Greater Boston communities. Modern and contemporary art programs at the Harvard Art Museums are made possible in part by generous support from the Emily Rauh Pulitzer and Joseph Pulitzer, Jr., Fund for Modern and Contemporary Art.
