Barnet Scholar's Gallery Talk

Barnet Scholar's Gallery Talk

with Renée Ater

Associate Professor of American Art at the University of Maryland Renée Ater is a historian of 19th- and 2oth- century American art. Her research and teaching focuses on issues of race, gender, and national identity, as well as public culture, memory, and monument building. As the visiting scholar for our spring 2017 Barnet Scholar's weekend, Ater applies her expertise to the towering figure of Ulysses S. Grant with the talk Ulysses S. Grant: Monuments, Memories, and Museums.

Friday noontime talks are free with museum admission, and feature curators, educators, scholars, or artists in the galleries.
