ARLINGTON - What does the art of the past mean to the artist of the present? In the Kimbell Museum of Arts's ongoing lecture series, artists discuss works in the museum's collection. The artists share the insights of the practicing professional and relate older art to contemporary artistic concerns, including their own. Two upcoming programs will be given by faculty from The University of Texas at Arlington Department of Arts and Art History.
Artist Nancy Palmeri will discuss her work in the context of the Kimbell permanent collection at 11 a.m. Saturday, April 18. Mary Vaccaro, an art historian, will give a lecture at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 22, related to the current Kimbell exhibition, "Art and Love in Renaissance Italy." Her lecture is titled "What's Her Name? Identifying Beautiful Women (Belle Donne) in Renaissance Art." The programs are free and do not require reservations.
