Author Talk: Neil Harris, Capital Culture

Wednesday, January 22, 4:00 p.m.

Neil Harris, Preston and Sterling Morton Professor Emeritus in the Departments of History and Art History, University of Chicago

American art museums flourished in the late twentieth century, and the impresario leading much of this growth was J. Carter Brown, the director of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., from 1969 to 1992. In conjunction with the publication of Harris’s Capital Culture: J. Carter Brown, the National Gallery of Art, and the Reinvention of the Museum Experience, this lecture will take a wide-ranging look at Brown’s achievements and the growth of museum culture during the period. No reservations are necessary, and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
