This week SAM offers a tour of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness: American Art from the Yale University Art Gallery with John Impert. Educated at Yale, Harvard and the University of Paris, John embarked upon the study of art history after a career in international law. His master's thesis at the University of Washington involved the Parisian illustrated press at the time of the Dreyfus Affair in the 1890s, and he has published an article on antiquities and Holocaust restitution in the journal Museologies.
My Favorite Things tours bring some of the most opinionated and fascinating artists, cultural producers and community figures into the galleries to discuss their favorite works of art.
Free with museum admission. Tour meets at the entrance to the Fourth Floor special exhibition galleries.
