Art Viewing Adventures: Manuel Neri, Joan Brown and the Bay Area Figurative Movement (Virtual)
Mon December 28, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Join Rodney Paul, an experienced museum guide, as he discusses the works of Manuel Neri and Joan Browan, central figures in the Bay Area Figurative Movement of the 1950s and 60s. Though their marriage was brief, they greatly influenced one another and figured in each other’s paintings and sculptures. Museum guide Drucie Belman will join Rodney to discuss Neri, whose sculptures can currently by seen outdoors at the Shrem Museum on the UC Davis campus. Rodney will discuss Brown’s paintings, including “Noel in the Kitchen,” currently on view at SFMOMA.

Rodney has been leading Zoom-based art tours long before shelter-in-place, as a way to share art from a distance. In his tours, he provides information to help viewers mine the artworks for meaning based on their own experiences and perceptions.
