Lecture: Pretty as a Picture: Nature Observations Then and Now

September 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

CT United States

With Judy Preston, Local Naturalist

In conjunction with our current exhibition “Fresh Fields: American Impressionist Landscapes from the Florence Griswold Museum”, we ask: what was set in motion by the observations and renderings of the local landscape through the painters’ eyes? Is it still possible to find those places? Preston explains what mechanisms were set in place at the turn of the last century that have left an indelible impression on the lower estuary landscape — for better and for worse?

The lecture will take place virtually via GoTo Webinar and a link to access the event will be sent when participants register. The event is free but registration is required via our website.
