The 3rd Annual Alexander Arts Lecture will be held on Sunday, October 12, 2014 at 4 pm in the Museum’s Community Meeting Room. The Museum is delighted that Sarah Cash, Bechhoefer Curator of American Art at the Corcoran Gallery in Washington, DC will be the featured speaker at this year’s lecture. Mrs. Cash will give an informal presentation about the unfolding history of the Corcoran Gallery and its amazing American collection.
The Alexander Lecture Series, to be held each fall in the Community Meeting Room of the Blowing Rock Art and History Museum, is an Endowed Lecture Series focused on American Art in honor of the extraordinary contributions of Patty and Welborn Alexander, founding members of the Museum. The endowment was established through gifts by members of the Museum’s Board of Trustees in 2012. The goal of this lecture is to engage diverse audiences and create a cultural dialogue, thereby enriching the lives of the participants with current perspectives in the visual arts.
