The Athenaeum presents various series of art and music lectures, including topics in classical music and jazz, visual art, art history, and architecture, with speakers from San Diego and beyond.
This is a must! If you loved pianist Jacquelyne Silver’s exciting series From Brahms to Broadway!, you will be captivated with her new series on HOLLYWOOD—the music, the moguls, the movie stars and the story behind the power of the larger-than-life men and women who profoundly influenced our everyday lives.
with Derrick R. Cartwright
This series explores the art world of today with an eye toward the unique conditions of making, consuming, exhibiting, and sustaining a vibrant visual culture in the 21st century. Although some situations are indeed “problematic,” the point of these lectures is not to bemoan our predicaments or to offer negative judgments; rather it will be to identify more clearly the prevailing creative conditions of our contemporary moment and ask, “How did our art world get to be this way?”
