2017 Fall Opener ***RSVP Today!!!***
with Martha Tedeschi, Director of the Harvard Art Museums 

  

It is an exciting time for the arts at Harvard! Join Dr. Martha Tedeschi, Elizabeth and John Moors Cabot Director,  Harvard Art Museums, for an intimate conversation about what is happening at the Harvard Art Museums and the Museums’ role in integrating the arts into campus and community life in Cambridge.

The Harvard Art Museums (Fogg, Busch-Reisinger, Sackler) are among the nation’s largest and most important art collections and are also a critical resource for research, teaching, and learning at Harvard. Together, the Harvard Art Museums’ internationally renowned collections consist of approximately 250,000 objects from the ancient world to the present and across all media, including objects from the Americas, Europe, North Africa, the Mediterranean, and Asia.  

     

Speaker:
Martha Tedeschi assumed the directorship at the Harvard Art Museums in July 2016. Prior to her arrival at Harvard, she served as deputy director for art and research at the Art Institute of Chicago, where she also enjoyed a long tenure as curator in the Department of Prints and Drawings. A specialist in 19th-century British and American art, Tedeschi has written in particular depth about James McNeill Whistler, Winslow Homer, and John Marin and has frequently collaborated with conservators and conservation scientists.
