FOCUS: Art and the Jazz Age
by Charles A. Riley II, Director of the Nassau County Museum of Art
Riley’s talk is based on his most recent book, Free as Gods: How the Jazz Age Reinvented Modernism. Drawing on unpublished albums, drawings, paintings and manuscripts, he offers a fresh examination of both canonic and overlooked writers and artists and their works.
The talk will be held in the Library Lecture Room of the Stony Brook University Library at the Southampton campus (Southampton Library Room 201).
The University Libraries’ Art in Focus Southampton events are co-sponsored by the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center and made possible by support from the John H. Marburger III Fund of Stony Brook University. These events are part of the Libraries’ continuing mission to engage in scholarly, cultural, and artistic interactions with Stony Brook University and the community. Stay tuned for other events in the Art in Focus lecture series throughout the year.
