Julie Pierotti, the Martha R. Robinson Curator at the Dixon Gallery and Gardens in Memphis, will take center stage for a fascinating investigation of the exhibition, Monet to Matisse: Masterworks of French Impressionism from the Dixon Gallery and Gardens. Comprised of 50 works by Impressionists such as Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Mary Cassatt, and John Singer Sargent, Monet to Matisse offers both art novices and enthusiasts alike an expansive view of Impressionism and Post- Impressionism. The talk delves into why this movement was revolutionary at the time, and is important to understand now in an age filled with disruptors.

Changes have been made in the museum to ensure a safe and healthy visit. As we bring back in-person programming, we have reduced the attendance capacity of our performances and programs to assure that we can be physically distant, while also socially connected. Protective face coverings are required for staff and all visitors over the age of two while inside the Museum and in the Setzer Auditorium. Vaccinated performers will not be required to wear masks, and vocalists on stage will be stationed 10ft or more from the general audience.
