Palm Beach area alumni, parents, and friends are invited to join David Lubin, the Charlotte C. Weber Professor of Art, for a docent led tour of the Norton Museum of Art, followed by Professor Lubin's lecture, Whitney at War: Healing, Death, and Memory in the WWI Sculptures.
The evening will start with a docent-led tour, accompanied by Professor David Lubin, of the Norton Museum of Art. The tour starts at 5 p.m. and should last approximately 50 minutes. Registrants are encourage to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the tour and details on where to meet will be sent to registrants the week of the event. During and briefly after the tour, Wake Foresters will enjoy the opportunity for some casual conversation with Professor Lubin.
After a brief break, Professor Lubin's lecture, Whitney at War: Healing, Death, and Memory in the WWI Sculptures, will begin at 6:30 p.m. He will discuss Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney’s involvement in WWI as the founder of a field hospital in France and as a sculptor concerned with conveying the suffering of the wounded soldiers.
Both the tour and lecture are free of charge, but we do ask that you RSVP for the tour so that we may provide an accurate number to the museum.
