“Putting on a Show: Infinite Jest at the Metropolitan Museum of Art”

Connie McPhee, Curator for the Department of Drawings and Prints at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, will discuss her exhibition, “Infinite Jest: Caricature and Satire from Leonardo to Levine,” shown at the New York museum in 2011-12. Connie will reveal how the show was conceived, planned, and mounted, and how its focus on humor as a means of artistic expression was unusual for the institution. It time permits, she will conclude with a foretaste¬† of upcoming projects. Sponsored in part by Harbor Light Newspaper.

Refreshments at 4:00 pm, Lecture at 4:30 pm.

Seating is limited, please purchase in advance. Tickets are $15 each.
