Alice Neel @ NMWA

The National Museum for Women in the Arts will be hosting "An Afternoon with Alice Neel and Friends" on Saturday, Nov. 19 from 12:30-4:30. There will be four lectures, including one by Dr. Mary Garrard, a prominant D.C. feminist art historian (and one of my profs @ AU--nifty lady). She will be speaking on her experience of being painted by Neel in the 70s, as well as the interchange between artist and subject during the rise of feminist art.
