Patrick L. Kelly, artist, Albany, Texas
Moderated by George T. M. Shackelford, deputy director
What does the art of the past mean to the artist of the present? In this ongoing program, artists and architects discuss works in the Museum’s collection, share the special insights of the practicing professional, and relate older art to contemporary artistic concerns, including their own. Among the works discussed by the artist in relation to his own art will be pieces such as James Ensor's Skeletons Warming Themselves.
To request an accessibility accommodation for a Kimbell program, please email us as far in advance as possible.
