    “Sister Wendy Beckett has transformed public appreciation of art through her astonishing knowledge, insight and passion for painting and painters.” This set includes Sister Wendy's Story of Painting, Sister Wendy's Odyssey, and Sister Wendy's Grand Tour. Simultaneously delightful and scholarly--this is a must have for anyone interested in art history.

  • Exit Through the Gift Shop
    Exit Through the Gift Shop
    When British stencil artist Banksy traveled to Los Angeles to work, he came across obscure French filmmaker Thierry Guetta and his badly organized collection of videotapes involving the activities of graffiti artists. Inspired, Banksy assembled them with new footage to create this talked-about documentary, and the result is a mind-boggling and odd film (so strange as to be thought a hoax by some) about outsider artists and the definition of art itself.
  • The Impressionists
    The Impressionists

Move Over for Modernism!  - Ten (10) sessions, two hours per session

Register Today!

 Do you know the different between “Modern Art” and “modern art”? (Those capital letters actually mean something!) Did the artists of the early 20th century just burst onto the scene with a host of wholly new ideas—or was there an evolution that led to the new trends? What was going on in the culture during each of the major modern movements that contributed to their development? In this presentation program, we’ll examine the art produced from around 1874 to 1945 (or so) to find out where the seeds of modernism were sown and why they developed as they did. This survey will also reveal relationships between the past and present that one typically doesn’t expect in an analysis of Modern Art. Each week we’ll focus on a different movement.

Each week’s presentation will be stand-alone—so you may attend one, more, or ALL of these sessions. (We recommend the latter.)
