Art Viewing Adventures: Art, Race and Thomas Hart Benton (Virtual)
Mon December 12, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Regionalist painter Thomas Hart Benton was one of the first white artists to paint African-American life, labor, culture, and inequality. This program explores Benton’s attitudes towards race, especially compared to the time period in which he was working. We’ll be joined by Steve Sitton of the Benton Home State Historic Site in Kansas City to learn more about this important history.
