THE MONDAY ARTIST AT NOON LECTURE SERIES: LANI IRWIN
Monday, Aug. 31, noon, Falvey Hall, Brown Center, 1301 W. Mount Royal Ave.
Figurative painter Lani Irwin, MICA's Genevieve McMillan/Reba Stewart Chair in Painting for the 2009-2010 academic year, will introduce herself to the College community by showing slides of her paintings and sharing thoughts about how she envisions her year in Baltimore. Irwin believes art allows us to see the world through "the eyes and heart of another, feeling things we might not otherwise have felt." The endowed chair was created by the late Genevieve McMillan in 2006 to reflect the spirit and characteristics of Reba Stewart, who taught painting at MICA from 1963 until her death in 1971.
