Gallery Talk - Made in New Haven: A look at two exhibitions

Yale University Art Gallery

Join us for curator-led talks in the galleries that center around artists and objects associated with New Haven. Jennifer Reynolds-Kaye, the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman–Joan Whitney Payson Senior Fellow, Education Department, talks about the exhibition "Small Great Objects: Anni and Josef Albers in the Americas" and the Alberses’ deep and prolonged relationship with New Haven. The couple lived in the city while Josef taught at Yale and they collected many Prehispanic objects during their years here.

Keely Orgeman, the Alice and Allan Kaplan Assistant Curator of American Paintings and Sculpture, discusses the work of Thomas Wilfred on view in the exhibition Lumia: Thomas Wilfred and the Art of Light; more than 50 years after Wilfred visited Yale to perform a concert of silent luminous compositions in Harkness Theater, his son gifted three of his father’s light objects to the Gallery and a trove of the artist’s papers to the University’s Manuscripts and Archives collection.
