Martin Weinstein 04/17 Thu

Thursday, April 17,2014
7:00 p.m.
Pillsbury Auditorium

Martin Weinstein has given more than 500 photographs to the MIA, in addition to numerous prints, paintings, and sculptures. 31 Years: Gifts from Martin Weinstein, an exhibition on view through August 31, 2014, celebrates the depth and quality of his decades of art giving. Together these pictures highlight many stories - personal, institutional, and historic. One story, outlined in the accompanying catalogue, centers on the late Carroll T. Hartwell (known as Ted), the MIA's founding photography curator, and his long-standing friendship with Weinstein. Join Martin and David E. Little, Curator of Photography and New Media, in a conversation about a lifetime of collecting and giving. Book signing to follow.

$10, $5 MIA members. Free for members of the Photography and New Media Affinity Group.

Jody Williams 04/19 Sat

Saturday, April 19, 2014
11:00 a.m.
Friends Community Room

Jody Williams clearly remembers learning to write her name at age 4 in order to get her own library card. Her passion for books eventually led to making them herself, which she has done since 1989. With a background in printmaking and papermaking, the influence of the fine arts is obvious in her work. Less obvious is the influence and importance of libraries, regular books, and research, which she will talk about as she presents her work.

$10, $5 MIA members. Free for members of the Library Affinity Group.

Aztec Rites 04/24 Thu

Thursday, April 24, 2014
7:00 p.m.
Wells Fargo Room

Each spring, the Aztec emperor and allied kings from the Valley of Mexico made a pilgrimage to a distant mountaintop shrine to enthrone the rain god Tlaloc, summon the rain clouds, and usher in the annual time for planting and cultivation. This lecture by Richard Townsend of the Art Institute of Chicago will portray these royal rites of renewal with an exploration of Aztec archaeological sites, sculptures, and illuminated pages from early 16th century pictorial manuscripts.

$10, $5 MIA members. Free for Members of the African Art Affinity Group.

Friends Lecture: Kathleen Weil-Garris Brandt 05/08 Thu

Thursday, May 8, 2014
11:00 a.m.
Pillsbury Auditorium

For decades a small marble statue of a winged boy stood in the grand foyer of the French Cultural Services townhouse on New York’s Fifth Ave. Kathleen Weil-Garris Brandt, a well-known art professor at New York University, had seen it many times and finally realized it could be a lost work of a teenaged Michelangelo. In her May 8 Friends lecture, Brandt traces the evolving sources of Michelangelo’s genius.

Free, ticket required.
