Luciano Cheles, Piero della Francesca's Impact on New Deal Muralists
April 20 | 6p | Non-Members $7.50 (FAC Members $5) | Buy tickets
Luciano Cheles, Professor of Italian Studies at the University of Poitiers (France), will examine the influence of Italian art, especially the work of Renaissance master artist Piero della Francesca, on a number of New Deal muralists, including the Broadmoor Art Academy artists Boardman Robinson, George Biddle, Frank Mechau, Ethel Magafan, and Eric Bransby.
Art and Letters: Artists during the New Deal era, in their own words
May 15 | 2p | Music Room | Free and open to the public
In letters, written from 1929-1944, Broadmoor Art Academy/FAC artists express their struggles, joys, and dedication to their art. The letters are from the archives of one of those artists, Archie Musick. Images of the artists and their work accompany the live reading of the letters. The writers of the letters were articulate, passionate, and often funny. Their voices, sounding through the decades, bring to life the personal impact of New Deal art programs and the human side of the art world during the Depression and World War II.
Blake Milteer, Photography
May 22 | 6p
Blake Milteer, the FAC’s Museum Director and Curator of American Art, will discuss the evolution of the images and process of the works in the Depression Era Photographs exhibition as well as how the use of documentary photography has led to social change in this country.
