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.
This week SAM offers a tour of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness: American Art from the Yale University Art Gallery with Melanie Enderle, a Ph.D. candidate in art history at the University of Washington and an instructor at Seattle Central Community College. Enderle's research focuses on 19th- and early 20th-century American and British art. She will lead a discussion on Thomas Eakins and his treatment and portrayal of women as subjects of his paintings.
Free with museum admission. Tour meets at the entrance to the Fourth Floor special exhibition galleries.
