Dinner, dining room
An exciting new lecture, especially created for the Coffee House and Salmagundi audience, based on the latest research from the Artful Circle team, Franklin Hill Perrell and Debbie Wells.
Perrell and Wells will explore how the landmark modernist architecture of Marcel Breuer at the former Whitney Museum showcases the stunning Frick collection in a new light, and how the Frick curators have astutely and brilliantly adapted their installation to these surroundings. For the first time, this collection of some of the world’s most important paintings has been organized by region, chronological period, and stylistic affinity. It is astonishing to see how fresh the presentation now looks!
Franklin Hill Perrell and Debbie Wells as a curatorial team have organized numerous museum and gallery exhibitions, and together they founded Artful Circle, an educational organization that presents an ongoing series of art history and gallery themed classes on contemporary art, art history, and international art sites. Franklin Hill Perrell is a longtime Coffee House member, and Debbie Wells is an active artist-member of Salmagundi—what a perfect combination with a timely theme!
