WBR hosts first lunchtime lecture of 2015

The West Baton Rouge Museum will host a lunchtime lecture at noon Jan. 7 titled “Landscape Painting.”

The lecture is timed to help close the museum’s popular exhibition “Wild Land: Thomas Cole and the American Landscape Artists.”

The exhibition will be on display at the museum until Jan. 7. It takes visitors “into the woods” and through Cole’s studio revealing the ways in which he and other artists of his time pioneered cultural conversations that shaped our nation’s landscape.

Art historian Claudia Kheel will serve as the guest speaker for the Jan. 7 lunchtime lecture and will take attendees on a journey through the beautiful American landscapes from New England to the Louisiana bayous of the 19th century.

Kheel is a nationally recognized artist who is an expert in Louisiana landscape paintings.

The lunchtime lecture is free and open to the public.
