Artist Lecture by Scott Noel
Thursday, September 10, 6 pm
Frances Niederer Auditorium
Scott Noel is an Associate Professor at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This exhibit at the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum at Hollins University presents Noel’s large-scale classically inspired works. In his contemporary retellings of Greek and Roman history and myth, he locates his Arcadia in his studio in Manayunk, a suburb of Philadelphia. His models are local artists, students, family members and friends who play out relationships codified in thousands of years of verse and pictorial history. A reception will follow the lecture.
