On October 24 at 5:30 p.m., Frederick Lewis, an associate professor for the School of Media Arts & Studies at Ohio University will be coming to the Art Museum to examine and explain the works of Rockwell Kent.
During his talk, Lewis will use selected clips from his definitive documentary on Rockwell Kent to retrace his repertoire of work. In his documentary, Lewis discusses the epic life of this artist, illustrator, adventurer and social activist once known as the “stormy petrel of American art.
