Tuesday Art Talks

Presented by docents of the University of Arizona Museum of Art, in partnership with the Pima County Public Library, join us every 2nd Tuesday of the month for illustrated art talks on a variety of topics.

This month, Norman Miller presents "The Symbolist Movement in Art and Poetry." This movement, which originated in France around 1880, influenced the course of European art and literature for over a generation and helped lay the foundation for contemporary abstract art.
