Event description

Description

Speaker: Robery W. Cherny, Professor Emeritus of History, San Francisco State University

Robert Cherny's talk will cover Victor Arnautoff's life and career, with special attention to his 24 years as a faculty member of the Stanford Art Department. Arnautoff (1896-1979) was brought before the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1956 and took the 5th Amendment. Cherny will focus on Arnautoff's experience with Wallace Sterling and the Stanford Advisory Board in the mid-1950s against the context of this controversy. He will also talk about the evolution of the art program while Arnautoff was at Stanford.

*If you register for a charter bus ticket, please plan to board the bus promptly outside the Stanford Faculty Club at 9:30 a.m. on December 2. The bus will return us to the Faculty Club area by 1:30 p.m. that day. You can park your car at the nearby Tresidder parking lot, 436 Mayfield Avenue, Stanford. A minimum total of bus ticket orders is needed for us to provide the service. You will be notified by November 27 if not enough reservations were received to justify a bus. Please be aware, however, if you decide to drive yourself, that parking in the SFSU vicinity will likely be difficult to find. You can access SFSU parking information here.
