Join City Club as Dr. Timothy J Standring, Gates Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the Denver Art Museum, gives us a sneak preview of the museum's upcoming special exhibition, “Wyeth: Andrew and Jamie in the Studio."
Opening November 2015, this groundbreaking exhibition of more than 100 works explores the connection between two American artists who shared artistic habits of mind while maintaining their own artistic voices. This will be the first time the two (father and son) have been exhibited in the shared context of their autobiographies, studio practices and imagination. After the Denver venue, this exhibition will travel to Madrid following its exclusive Denver run.
