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 Kimberly Hereford, a doctoral candidate at the University of Washington. Kimberly’s research focuses on mid 19th- and early 20th-century American and British art, and she works primarily in issues related to women's studies. She will lead a discussion on Thomas Dewing's Summer (1890) and his portrayal of women as subjects of his paintings.
Free with museum admission. Tours meet at the entrance to the fourth floor special exhibition galleries.
