Time: 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Location: Reynolda House Museum of American Art
Ranging widely in subject matter and style, the fifty-three paintings and four sculptures featured in this exhibition from the Brooklyn Museum were produced by the most well-known artists from 1910-1960 including Georgia O'Keeffe, Marsden Hartley, Stuart Davis, Arthur Dove, Grandma Moses, Joseph Stella, Elie Nadelman, and Norman Rockwell. Significant works by these and other artists in the exhibition exemplify their unique contributions to modern culture.Between 1910 and 1960, both American society and art underwent tumultuous and far-reaching transformations. Many artists rejected or reformulated artistic traditions, seeking new ways to make their work relevant in a contemporary context. The exhibition is organized in interpretive groupings by themes such as the city, the body, landscape, still life, and Americana, all of which explore the myriad ways in which American artists engaged with modernity.

Time: 7:00 PM to 8:15 PM
Location: Museum of Anthropology
The January 12, 2010 earthquake that destroyed Port-au-Prince and its surrounding areas is one of the worst disasters in recent history. While the earthquake and cholera epidemic’s consequences in Haiti received considerable attention, very little is known about how these disasters impacted communities in the Dominican Republic. Dr. Tess Kulstad, Visiting Assistant Professor of Anthropology, Wake Forest University, will discuss the ways in which the earthquake and cholera epidemic impacted the residents of the border town of Comendador, Dominican Republic. She will examine the role that the border played in the international community’s perceptions of this disaster and how these perceptions shaped aid distribution, as well as the broader role that borders play in the social construction of disasters and its victims. The lecture will be followed by a wine and cheese reception. Admission is free.
