Conversations with Art: African American Artists Pre-1960

Published on Feb 4, 2023

Pasadena Village will host arts enrichment facilitator Helane Rheingold on Tuesday, Feb. 7, for “Conversations with Art: African American Artists Pre-1960” exploring the life and works of early African American artists, including Henry Ossawa Tanner (1859-1937), Horace Pippin (1888?1946), and Lois Mailou Jones (1905-1998).

An Art Education Consultant, Helane Rheingold will guide you through selected works of art, and share techniques on how to look at, interpret, and analyze them.

The event will be held at the Flintridge Center, at 236 W. Mountain Street #117 in Pasadena.

Having a lifelong connection with art, art history and museums, Rheingold developed “Conversations with Art” as an interactive art education program. In the last 28 years, she has facilitated these conversations with adults and children in libraries, schools and private senior residences in Connecticut and New York, as well as acting as a docent at the Neuberger Museum of Art, affiliated with the State University of New York in Purchase, New York.

As its name implies, the program begins with a conversation, one with which Rheingold uses handouts and slides, and “always ends up with me learning something” as well as the group, she says.
