hopperrailroad sunsetThe HART Society will host a tour of “Real/Surreal: Selections from the Whitney Museum of American Art,” an exhibit at the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, on Thursday, September 18. Vivien Fryd, professor of history of art, will lead the tour, and students and faculty should plan to meet in Cohen’s 21st Avenue lobby at 5:00 pm.

Fryd will lead participants in understanding major movements within American art history from 1920 to 1950 as represented by works in the current exhibit, which features a survey of works from the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s drawn from the Whitney.

Anyone interested in the HART-sponsored tour at the Frist should RSVP (by September 17) to Jodi Chamberlain at jodi.l.chamberlain@vanderbilt.edu.
