Join us for an exciting event with Drs. Holly Pyne Connor and Sarah Burns and support the Newark Museum. Dr. Connor is the Museum’s distinguished Curator of 19th-Century American Art, and curator of the exhibition, Angels & Tomboys: Girlhood in 19th -Century American Art. Dr. Burns, Professor Emerita, School of Fine Arts, Indiana University, authored the essay Making Mischief: Tomboys Acting Up and Out of Bounds, in the exhibition catalogue. A rare assemblage of masterpieces by John Singer Sargent, Thomas Eakins, Winslow Homer, Cecilia Beaux and William Merritt Chase, among others, Angels & Tomboys is the first exhibition to examine such themes as the hopes, fears and expectations for girls, many of which still resonate today as well as the impact of the Civil War on family life. Our speakers will provide thought-provoking discussions of major works in the exhibition, situating them in a meaningful historical and social context.
The program will take place in the newly restored Billy Johnson Auditorium, following a champagne reception, as well as shopping and viewing of the exhibition. Angels & Tomboys: Girlhood in 19th-Century American Art is presented with an indemnity from the Federal Council on the Arts and Humanities, and major support from Johnson & Johnson and the National Endowment for the Arts.
