Artists in Fiction
Strathmore’s art-themed book club discovers the lives of Vincent Van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keeffe, and Frank Lloyd Wright. Explore the fictions of your favorite artists, turning the pages of both popular and lesser-known novels, then join fellow readers and art enthusiasts one Wednesday a month to discuss forgotten painters, mysterious art heists, and miraculous recoveries of masterpieces. At each meeting, we’ll examine the factual background along with the fiction.
Please RSVP to help us plan.
New! Due to popular demand, a second meeting time each day at 3pm has been added.
