Event description

Description

Join us for the 17th annual Sunday Salons lecture series. Elizabeth W. Hutchinson, Associate Professor of American Art History, Barnard College and Columbia University, will discuss the complex meaning of native Americans in Cole's Thomas Cole's art. The event takes place on Sunday, February 23 at 2 pm in Thomas Cole's New Studio, 218 Spring Street, Catskill, New York, 12414.

This talk will examine Thomas Cole's depictions of northern New York, thinking through how they participate in the transformation of Mohawk land into American territory. Dr. Hutchinson will share historical information about settler-indigenous interactions during the late 18th and early 19th centuries and compare Mohawk ways of understanding land and landscape with Anglo-American ones. The presentation will end with a few artworks by contemporary Haudenosaunee artists who reflect on this history.
