Unfortunately, this event has been cancelled. We hope you can join us for one of our other educational offerings.


For the spring meeting of our popular quarterly book group we’ll delve into Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sebastian Smee’s The Art of Rivalry: Four Friendships, Betrayals, and Breakthroughs in Modern Art. This unique approach to art history explores the story of four pairs of artists—Manet and Degas, Picasso and Matisse, Pollock and deKooning and Freud and Bacon. Meijer Gardens’ Curator of Arts Education will join us to discuss the particular styles of these artists and the influences of historical events on Modern art. We hope you can join us for a lively and enlightening conversation! 

This will be a virtual book group meeting hosted through Zoom.
