She then uses African textiles with traditional designs and patterns to create compositions that are intricate. The vibrant mosaic of shapes and patterns transform historical figures into powerful narratives.

Common Reads—The Transcendentalists:

Emerson, Thoreau, and Whitman

Through the seminal works of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, and Walt Whitman, we will delve into the philosophy and literature of the Transcendentalist movement. The Transcendentalists were non-conformists who critiqued contemporary 19th-century society, lived by the values of individualism and idealism, and asserted the divinity of nature. Discussion will be led by Frick staff members Lisa Viscusi and Kelly McMasters.

A program link will be sent to all registered participants. Cost: Free; donations gratefully accepted. Advance registration required.
