Talk on Rendering Volcanoes in Art and Literature
The Figge Art Museum presents the third talk in the series Artists and Writers at 7 pm Thursday, March 24. Dr. Beatrice Jacobson, who teaches early American literature and creative nonfiction as well as courses in women’s studies at St. Ambrose University, will present the lecture “Rendering Volcanoes.” Professor Jacobson’s focus on Emily Dickinson and her ongoing research in Ecuador have led to her interest in volcanoes and she will connect her research to the Figge painting The Bay of Naples by William Stanley Haseltine, which is on display in the American Gallery. The Artists and Writers series explores how writers and artists inspire each other as well as how writers and artists treat similar themes, and is part of the Figge’s weekly Thursdays at the Figge programming. The final talk in the series is scheduled for March 31.Admission to the museum and lecture is $7. Admission is free to Figge members and Institutional members. The Figge Arts Café and Bar will be open before and after the lecture.
