Schultz to lead Lunchtime Looks

MORGANTOWN — The Art Museum of WVU announces the third program in its Lunchtime Looks series for the 2019-20 academic year set for Friday. Bernie Schultz will present the program.

The topic of his presentation will be Harry Sternberg’s print “Fascism,” which responds to a tradition of artists who have expressed the horror of conflict and war. Although from the 20th century, Sternberg’s work draws inspiration from a painting done centuries earlier, Peter Paul Rubens’ “Allegory of the Outbreak of War” from 1638. Schultz’s talk will explore the visual and meaningful dialogue between these two works.

Prior to the talk, at noon Friday, all are invited to bring a brown-bag lunch to the Museum Education Center Grand Hall to converse with Schultz, museum staff and fellow museum-goers as they enjoy their midday meal. The presentation will commence at 12:20 p.m. in the McGee gallery of the Art Museum of WVU. The session will end by 1 p.m., for those who need to get back to their offices.

Lunchtime Looks is an opportunity for WVU students, faculty and staff, and the general public to learn more about the art and exhibitions on display at the museum and to meet other art enthusiasts in the area.

Schultz is Professor Emeritus of Art History in the College of Creative Arts. He has also served the College as associate dean and dean and is a docent at the Art Museum of WVU.

The Art Museum and Museum Education Center are near the corner of Patteson Drive and Morrill Way at the Evansdale Campus North Entrance.

Parking is available in short-term lots ST-1 and ST-9, with pay stations, one near Patteson Drive and the other near the new Evansdale Crossing building.
