Art and Fiction Book Club

Meeting quarterly, the Art and Fiction Book Club explores each reading selection through lectures, gallery talks, and a discussion group led by educators, curators, and experts. October’s selection is Light: With Monet at Giverny by Eva Figes. In luminous prose, Eva Figes takes us through a day at Giverny with Monet and his family and friends. While Monet himself works to pin down the light in his paintings, the other characters too experience its richness in very different ways.
