Stay Current with the Pick of the Day: "Arthur Dove's Meteorology"

Arthur Dove: Clouds and Water

Rachael Z. DeLue, associate professor of art and archaeology at Princeton University and author of George Inness and the Science of Landscape, is completing a book about Arthur Dove (1880-1946), an early modernist who is often considered the first American abstract painter. In "Arthur Dove's Meteorology," DeLue discusses the artist's preoccupation with the nature and properties of human expression and the sign systems used therein. Dove's career-long project entailed a utopian vision of radical connection, a totalizing network of relationships among objects, phenomena, and beings. The science of meteorology served as a model for this vision. Part of Trinity's Stieren Arts Enrichment Series, DeLue's talk in the Chapman Auditorium is free and and open to the public. Shown here: Dove's 1930 painting Clouds and Water. Free; 6pm Tue, Nov 6; Chapman Auditorium, Trinity University, (210) 999-8515, Check out our full online calendar of upcoming events here:
