Join us for Art in the Afternoon, the Timken's popular series of afternoon gallery talks. This lecture will feature exhibition curator Amy Galpin, who will explore artworks from the exhibition "Behold, America!" The exhibition offers an unprecedented opportunity to view the full sweep of American art history - from colonial to contemporary - as told through the visual art of three San Diego institutions. Internationally known for their permanent collections and scholarly exhibitions, these institutions together provide a three-museum venue for Behold, America!, which will be grouped into three sections, Figures, Forms, and Frontiers, with each venue showing works from all three collections. The Timken Museum of Art presents Forms, which includes examples of traditional still-lifes by Raphaelle Peale, early American modernism by Morgan Russell and Manierre Dawson, and a minimalist work by Agnes Martin.
