2:30 – 3 pm, Benefit Street Entrance

What is the relationship between artists and the people that they paint? What are we supposed to glean from a “portrait?” Join Elizabeth Berman (Brown University BA ‘16, Art History and Visual Art) to consider these degrees of separation between artist, subject and viewer. Explore various examples of unconventional portraiture and paintings from the 15th century to today.

Explore art and design through gallery talks spanning centuries and cultures from the perspective of student artists and art historians.
