Boston Expressionism: An Expressive Voice
Painting realistically at a time when abstraction was on the rise, Boston Expressionist artists have long existed outside the mainstream of American art. What was their focus? What social concerns impacted their work? Why should painting be considered during our digital age? Explore these questions and more with the True North Painter Series.
Join North Hill, the next evolution of senior living, and Danforth Museum Director Katherine French to learn about Boston Expressionism and its enduring influence on American art. This course is open to all active adults in the Boston area.
This class is an outgrowth of North Hill’s institutional partnership with The Danforth Museum of Framingham. Sponsored by North Hill, Massachusetts’ senior living leader.
