This summer the Farnsworth will launch a new lecture series honoring the artist Will Barnet, whose contribution to American art and the teaching of art in America has been extraordinary. Marilyn S. Kushner, Curator and Head, Department of Prints, Photographs and Architectural Collections, New York Historical Society (N-YHS), will deliver an illustrated talk on the large and well-received exhibition “The Armory Show at 100: Modernism and Revolution.” Dr. Kushner co-curated the recent exhibition (2013-14) by the same name at the N-YHS.
