An Emphasis on Dialogue

When: Sat., July 25 2015

The Lockwood Thompson Dialogues series was founded in 2006 through an endowment of the late Lockwood Thompson, a former trustee of the Cleveland Public Library. The Dialogues series brings nationally and internationally renowned individuals to Cleveland to initiate thoughtful and thought-provoking conversations with particular relevance to our community. This year, the Cleveland Public Library is partnering with the Cleveland Museum of Art to present two legendary African American painters, Barkley Hendricks and Kehinde Whiley. At 2 p.m. today, Hendricks will discuss his work and its socio-political themes. Hendricks’ work continues to be relevant today. Whiley is arguably one of the most successful painters in today’s art market. He will discuss his work on at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 29. Both lectures are free, but registration is strongly recommended. (Usmani)
