Fundraiser: Aspects of Portraiture Opening Reception

Join Director & CEO Susan Talbott for an inside look at her Director’s Choice exhibition Aspects of Portraiture: Photographs from the Wadsworth Atheneum.

Aspects of Portraiture addresses various approaches to photographic portraiture taken by artists such as Irving Penn, Richard Avedon, Patti Smith, and Carrie Mae Weems, and celebrates the patrons whose gifts are on view, with special homage to our late friend Robinson Grover.

Light hors d’oeuvres and libations will be served.

Tickets required. To register call (860) 838-4077 or email Karen Simpson by Monday, July 6.

Please enter the museum via the Avery Memorial Building from Prospect Street.
