Lecture – Impossible Interviews: Artists Alma Thomas and Warren Rohrer in Conversation
Jonathan Frederick Walz, Ph.D., Director of Curatorial Affairs & Curator of American Art, The Columbus Museum
Inspired by Miguel Covarrubias’s “Impossible Interviews” for Vanity Fair in the 1930s, this talk brings together the lives of two artists who were contemporaries but who never met in person. Walz will highlight the similarities and differences between Alma Thomas and Warren Rohrer, including their shared position on the margins of the 1970s art world. There will be ample time for questions and answers. Jonathan Frederick Walz, an expert on American modernism, is co-organizing a major traveling exhibition, Alma W. Thomas: Everything is Beautiful, which will open in 2021.
