Lyman Allyn Museum
Join Professor Emeritus Barbara Zabel for this exciting new 10-week art history series at the Lyman Allyn Art Museum! The 2015 opening of the Whitney Museum’s magnificent new Renzo Piano designed home located between the High Line and the Hudson River provides a unique opportunity to explore American art through the Museum’s unparalleled collection of 20th century art. The course—and the greatly expanded galleries of the Museum—will offer new perspectives on art in the United States, from the early acquisition of Ashcan School painters by founder Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney to more recent acquisitions of contemporary art. We will also discuss works of art from the Lyman Allyn collection as they relate to those in the Whitney collection. The course will culminate with an optional bus trip to New York for an exploration of the Whitney Museum and specially arranged tours of the galleries of contemporary art (extra fee will apply for the bus).Weekly classes will be held in the auditorium of the Lyman Allyn Art Museum, located at 625 Williams Street in New London.
