Artists and Immigrants Series: A Conversation with Alicia Longwell, Ph.D., on John D. Graham
Join them virtually for a conversation with Alicia Longwell, Ph.D., who will discuss the artist John D. Graham (1886-1961). Graham was a mentor to many modern artists, as well as a writer, painter, and friend to Chaim Gross. Born in Kiev, Graham immigrated to the United States in 1920 and made a name for himself. Learn more about Graham's life and his connection to Gross during the program, which takes place on Wednesday, January 13, 2021 at 6 pm EST. The event is free, but donations are greatly appreciated.
Alicia Longwell, Ph.D., is the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator, Art and Education, at the Parrish Art Museum Water Mill, NY. She curated the exhibition "John Graham: Maverick Modernist" in 2017, which included two loans from the Renee & Chaim Gross Foundation collection. In celebration of the centennial of Chaim Gross's immigration to the United States, the Foundation is focusing our 2021 programming on illuminating the stories of artists and immigrants in the collection. Their winter and spring programming is centered around Eastern European emigrants.
Registration is required.
