Lunchtime Looks

Wednesday, February 28  12:00-1:00 p.m.
Museum Education Center, Grand Hall

What happens when a work of folk art or self-taught art is displayed in a fine-at museum? Are labels like ‘folk,’ ’self-taught,’ ‘fine,’ ‘primitive’ even useful, or do they prejudice viewers’ perceptions of the art?  Dr. Rosemary Hathaway, Associate Professor of English at WVU, will look at several works in the Impulse: A Trip Inside exhibit, all in the same medium of carved wood, to explore these questions.

Free and open to the public.
