Saturdays at the Stanley Online: For My People - Elizabeth Catlett & Margaret Walker

  • 2:00 PM

Online via Zoom

Elizabeth Catlett and Margaret Walker met at the University of Iowa while they were pursuing their MFA degrees, Catlett for fine arts and Walker in the Writers' Workshop. Join Chief Curator Joyce Tsai this Saturday as we read Margaret Walker's poem, For My People (1942) and look at Elizabeth Catlett's print portfolio of the same name from 1992. 

Saturdays at the Stanley brings the museum's collection to audiences in a casual, fun, and interactive atmosphere. Each event has a theme that looks at our artwork from a different perspective. Curators lead visitors through a selection of works, share stories about the artists and subject matter, and open the discussion up to the audience. We invite visitors of all ages to participate in these conversations and get (re)acquainted with our collection as we look forward to the opening of our new building! 

Cost: Free and open to all
