Impressionism: Game Changers
& Boundary Breakers
Saint-Lazare Station by Claude Monet (1877)
Join us for a lively discussion, and Pernod Absinthe cocktails (the alleged favorite of Vincent Van Gogh), courtesy of ArtPoint. Please enjoy Pernod responsibly.
Calling all game changers, boundary breakers, iconoclasts and troublemakers. An evening celebrating ideas and artists who push society forward. While Impressionist painters now belong indisputably to the artistic pantheon, these absinthe-swilling bad-boys were actually the rebels of Paris. Join us for a discussion on how these imaginatively disruptive artists—pariahs in their day—redefined the art world and a look at parallels with today's internet-based creative networks. Panelists will include:
