Curator Walkthrough: JoAnne Northrup on: “The World Stage”
Join us for an exhibition walkthrough of “The World Stage, Contemporary Art from the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation” led by JoAnne Northrup, Curatorial Director and Curator of Contemporary Art. Guests will enjoy a guided walkthrough of the exhibition which includes canonical 20th century artists such as Helen Frankenthaler, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol, as well as leading 21st century artists such as Jeffrey Gibson, Mickalene Thomas, and Kehinde Wiley—an artist best known for his portrait of President Obama which hangs in the National Portrait Gallery. Northrup will discuss her motivation for selecting these 100 artworks, drawn from Schnitzer’s collection of more than 14,000 works, and introduce visitors to some of the lesser-known artists in the mix.
The Art Bite lecture series is supported by Nevada Humanities with additional sponsorship and free admission for students supported by the Core Humanities Program at the University of Nevada, Reno.
