About This Event

Art is for Everyone with Rona Steingart

Our homes have "pictures" on the walls making everyone an art collector. How did you acquire your "art?" Perhaps you inherited it, and it has been part of the life of your family for generations. Perhaps an interior designer selected pieces that were just the right colors to enhance your decor. Have you purchased art on vacation trips, hung it proudly in your home enjoying the memories? Learn about world-famous art collectors Steven Spielberg and Leonard Lauder, son of Estee Lauder, who have enriched our lives by donating their priceless art collections to American museums. Save Tuesday afternoons in February for this unique art experience. We will learn and participate in workshops where we will see art being made today in university art studios. What makes art "good?" Naples has a rich and varied art community. We will visit the Naples Art Association, view a national, juried show and learn how and where to buy art on "your" budget in our community. Two lectures will broaden your understanding of "modern art." Register now. This group will be limited to 20 people.

Contemporary Art Moves to America
Tuesday, February 6, 1:00-2:30 p.m.
The breathtaking, realistic work of James Whistler, Thomas Eakins and Winslow Homer will be presented in context with America moving from an agrarian society toward industrialization and an enormous population growth. American Impressionism is often overlooked by art historians but is as fascinating as French Impressionism. This presentation will astonish and thrill you with its beauty. Rona Steingart encourages group discussion during her PowerPoint presentations.

Pay Per Program: $25
