Window into the Artist’s Mind: Master Drawings from the MIA

Presenter: Rachel McGarry
Thursday, July 24, 6:30 p.m.
Pillsbury Auditorium

Hear exciting discoveries and incredible stories behind extraordinary drawings by artists such as Guercino, George Romney, Jean-François Millet, Edgar Degas, Käthe Kollwitz, Egon Schiele, Piet Mondrian, and Roy Lichtenstein, along with dazzling works by other masters who deserve to be better known. Rachel McGarry, PhD, curator of “Marks of Genius,” will offer a rare glimpse at many of the museum’s treasures usually hidden from view.
