Please join us as we engage with three esteemed contemporary photographers—David Taylor, Jeremiah Ariaz, and Will Wilson—who will discuss their projects on view at The Columbus Museum in the exhibition The Idea of West. Director of Curatorial Affairs Jonathan Frederick Walz and Curator of History Rebecca Bush will interview the artists, with time for questions from the public.
Open Range: The West and the American Imagination
Through an exploration of images of the American West drawn from paintings, photographs and cinema, Dr. McCoy will discuss the creation of the mythology of the West and its role in shaping American aspirations and character. What did the open range and endless possibility mean to Americans and what did it cost? Does the West still matter?
If you are interested in purchasing a $10 lunch, please contact the Education Dept. at email@example.com by November 2.
LOOK! @ Lunchtime is a collaborative viewing exercise and dialogue centered around works of art from the Museum’s permanent collection.
