Every work of Art tells a story. Sometimes the story is obvious, but most of the time there is a story behind what you see. This Lunch and Learn will explore the "hidden stories" which lie behind artworks in the Museums large collection.
Are the stories revealed in hidden signs and symbols in the artwork? Perhaps the real story is about the artists themselves. Or maybe it's about what is being portrayed? Portraits, landscapes, sculpture, drawings and even furniture will be under our microscope for this encompassing presentation.
Speaker: Michael Coyan has been the Executive Director of the Warren County Historical Society for two years. before which time, he was the Art Curator. A retired professor of Interdisciplinary Studies, Coyan taught for 32 years (at five colleges in US and lectured at three abroad) and is a favorite among his students.
