Marymount’s Humanities Graduate Program is kicking off it’s annual colloquium! Our Fall Semester speaker is Dr. Arthur Wheelock from the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, who will speak at 6:30 pm on Friday, 11/18, in Reinsch Auditorium. Dr. Wheelock will be speaking on “Dutch Paintings at the National Gallery of Art: The Dramatic Untold Stories of Collecting for the Nation.”
Arthur K. Wheelock Jr. is curator of northern baroque painting at the National Gallery of Art and professor of art history at the University of Maryland. He came to the National Gallery of Art in 1973 as the David E. Finley Fellow, after which he was named Research Curator. Dr. Wheelock has lectured widely on Dutch and Flemish art, written a number of books and articles on the subject, and received a number of honors throughout his career; most recently, the University of Maryland created a doctoral fellowship in his name: The Arthur K. Wheelock Jr. Fellowship in Northern Baroque Painting.
The HUM Grad Program will also host a small reception for Dr. Wheelock prior to the talk, beginning at 6:00 in the foyer of the auditorium; all are invited.
