Black and white print of a contemporary interpretation of Da Vinci's "Mona Lisa"

Arts at Amherst Initiative Spring Soirée

5:00 pm Virtual

Join the Arts at Amherst Initiative at our Spring Soirée to hear Joseph E. and Grace W. Valentine Visiting Assistant Professor of Music Kate Pukinskis and Mead Art Museum Study Room Manager and European Print Specialist Miloslava Hruba share their recent research. Miloslava will share field notes from her recent survey of printmaking practices in the former Czechoslovakia (1948-1989) with a focus on gender differences within the ideologically and culturally ostracized group of nonconforming artists. Following these presentations, there will be an opportunity for audience Q&A.

While the Spring Soirée cannot take place in person, the AAI Steering Committee is planning to do its best to replicate the welcoming atmosphere that these biannual events traditionally foster by offering contactless pickup of complimentary wine and cheese to the first 20 people who register for the event!
