“Edmonia Lewis, Sculpting Her Path Forward” at the Saint Louis Art Museum

It will be no surprise to longtime followers of this blog that the life and work of sculptor Edmonia Lewis is a favorite topic of this blogger. You may recall my post on her commemorative stamps that were issued last year or perhaps you watched my video on her most famous work, The Death of Cleopatra, on The Wandering Art Historian YouTube channel. Maybe you remember discussing Edmonia Lewis as part of The Wandering Art Historian book club (Broad Strokes: 15 Women Who Made Art and Made History [In That Order] by Bridget Quinn) or if you participated in my class From Muse to Master: Celebrating Women Artists vol. 2.

It is my pleasure to share with you yet another opportunity to learn about this fascinating artist. On Thursday, February 9th you can participate in a FREE online program hosted by the Saint Louis Art Museum titled “Edmonia Lewis, Sculpting Her Path Forward.” Presented by Charlie Farrell, the museum’s 2022-2024 Romare Bearden Graduate Fellow (and recent graduate of The Florida State University!), this virtual event simply requires a quick registration to attend.

Here’s more information on the lecture being offered…
