Coffee with the Curator, May 19

Join us for an informal coffee reception to celebrate NSLM's newest exhibition, A Sporting Vision: From the Paul Mellon Collection of British Sporting Art from the VMFA. Claudia Pfeiffer, NSLM's George L. Ohrstrom, Jr. Curator of Art, will greet guests and lead a tour of A Sporting Vision. The exhibition celebrates Paul Mellon’s gift of British sporting art to the VMFA. It also proposes a fresh look at sporting art within wider social and artistic contexts, including the scientific and industrial revolutions of the 18th and 19th centuries, the transformation of the British countryside, the evolutionary history of the horse and other animals, and society’s changing habits and customs.

$5 admission, free to NSLM members
