Location: Zoom Videoconference

Please join us for this live webinar on Monday September 14th at 7:00 PM EST.

Our popular art appreciation series ArtScapades returns for the 2020-2021 season, presenting a 6 lecture series entitled “A New Look at Modern Art.”

This lecture will look at the influence of African art on Modern artists in the West, including Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Amadeo Modigliani, as well as explore two well-known contemporary African artists, El-Salahi and El Anatsui.


ROBIN HOFFMAN and JODI STIFFELMAN began ArtScapades in 2009 after teaching art appreciation for ten years in the New Canaan public school system.  This is their twelfth series of lectures at New Canaan Library.
