An Evening with Author and Scholar Chr
By Bruce MuseumGreenwich Arts Council
The Greenwich Arts Council and Bruce Museum are pleased to announce the second in a series of engaging educational programs, An Evening with Author and Scholar Christina Weyl.

The evening’s program will start at the Greenwich Arts Council with cocktails, and an opportunity to view the exhibition WOMEN OF ATELIER 17 in the Bendheim Gallery from 5:00 - 6:00 pm on February 25th. The reception will be followed by Weyl’s talk at the Bruce Museum at 6:30 - 8:00 pm. Anitra Brooks, a docent at the Greenwich Arts Council, will be facilitating the talk, as well as moderating a question and answer session.

Atelier 17 operated as an uncommonly egalitarian laboratory for revolutionizing print technique, style, and scale. It facilitated women artists’ engagement with modernist styles, providing a forum for extraordinary achievements that shaped postwar sculpture, fiber art, neo-Dadaism, and the Pattern and Decoration movement.

Weyl’s new book, The Women of Atelier 17: Modernist Printmaking in Midcentury New York, follows eight women, who worked at the avant-garde printmaking workshop between 1940 and 1955. This program will give attendees unprecedented access to the creative process behind the works of Atelier 17.

To Register: Tickets are $25 for Arts Council and Bruce Museum members, $35 for non-members.
