ART AT HIGH NOON: THE HISTORIC NUDE WITH GUY KINNEAR

historic nude

AUGUST 4, 12:00N-1:00PM

SLO Museum of Art

Bring your lunch and enjoy a feast for the eyes with Art at High Noon, an art appreciation program for working adults. SLOMA will host an art history lecture, artist’s talk, or activity that fits perfectly within your lunch hour, giving 9-to-5’ers a dose of artistic inspiration during the work day. Admission is free and open to the public.

The nude is a cornerstone subject of western art and also one most problematic. The nude has been celebrated and censured, idealized, eroticized, and banalized. On Thursday, August 4 at 12 PM, SLOMA welcomes figurative artist Guy Kinnear for a history of the human body in the arts. He will cover the complex history of the nude in western art and its role in defining what it means to be human.
