Join us for an engaging tour of the exhibition led by Susan Weininger, the leading scholar and author of multiple comprehensive essays on Gertrude Abercrombie's art and life. Ms. Weininger will discuss Abercromie's highly dream-like, symbolic paintings; love of jazz; and involvement in the art world of Chicago in the late 1930s through the 1960s. Please register by contacting Meghan Lindstrom at Meghan.Lindstrom@Illinois.gov or 217-782-0979.
