The Bristol Art Museum presents a presentation by renowned art historian, gallerist, and appraiser Michael Rose on Thursday, November 4.

About this event

Throughout art history, printmaking has proven a fertile medium for artists to express dangerous opinions and voice political dissent. From the woodblock prints that illustrated the Protestant Reformation to Goya’s graphic Disasters of War and beyond, prints have circulated ideas and democratized access to information. In this engaging lecture, art historian Michael Rose will explore a range of exciting prints that both explicitly and implicitly probe radical ideas. Questions are welcome.

For more than 50 years, the Bristol Art Museum (BAM) has been serving the community on the eastern shore of Narragansett Bay. The only art museum between Providence and Newport, RI, BAM's mission is to encourage the creation, promotion and appreciation of the arts through exhibitions and educational opportunities. Community outreach programs and partnerships are central to our goal of engaging diverse audiences in the arts of our time. In 2014 BAM completed an award-winning restoration of the Linden Place carriage barn. Three galleries display six exhibits each year while the second floor accommodates studios and the Piccoli Community room, flexible and inspiring spaces to create, experience, and discuss art. BAM offers a robust suite of programs, including art classes and demonstrations, weekly Shakespeare Reading Group, Van-go Bus trips, Art Talks and panel discussions, and eclectic exhibits both in house and in the community (Rogers Free Library). Many programs are free and open to the public. On view now until May 28th at The Bristol Art Museum is "Between Stillness and Motion" featuring the work of Jean Segal Fain, Andrew Nixon, Penelope Manzella, J.P. Powel and Claudia Olds Goldie.
