Louise Feder at Morven September 14
Morven Museum and Garden presents Louise Feder, assistant curator of the James A. Michener Art Museum (and a 2006 graduate of Princeton High School), in a discussion about the 1913 Armory Show and its impact on select New Jersey and Pennsylvania artists, on Thursday, September 14 at 7 p.m.
The talk will focus on artists including Stuart Davis, John Grabach, Bernard Gussow, and John Marin, among others who are featured in Morven’s current exhibition “Newark and the Culture of Art: 1900-1960.” The exhibition galleries will open at 6:30 p.m. prior to this special event.
“Newark and the Culture of Art: 1900-1960” explores the unique combination of art and industry that made Newark, New Jersey a magnet for modern artists in the early 20th century. The exhibition celebrates the culture of creativity that flourished alongside John Cotton Dana’s Newark Museum. A museum director with powerfully democratic ideas, Mr. Dana sought to educate by presenting examples of superior design to the greatest possible number of people, particularly the city’s immigrant and working-class populations; making art a vital part of Newark’s culture and society.
Morven Museum and Garden is located at 55 Stockton Street in Princeton. Tickets for the Louise Feder talk are $10 for the general public and $8 for Friends of Morven, and can be purchased at morven.org or by calling (609) 924-8144, ext. 113.
