Join us for an Institute organized trip (*transportation will be available) to The Drawing Center featuring the upcoming exhibit Frank Walter: To Capture a Soul, the first solo museum exhibition in the United States to focus on the work of Antiguan artist Frank Walter (1926–2009).

“A polymath with a keen intellect and thirst for knowledge, Walter created a body of work that encompasses a variety of mediums, subject matter, and styles. During his lifetime, Walter produced over 5,000 paintings, 1,000 drawings, 600 sculptures, 2,000 photographs, 468 hours of recordings, and a 50,000-page archive. Organized by The Drawing Center’s Chief Curator Claire Gilman, To Capture a Soul provides insight into not only Walter’s artistic practice but also his relationship to issues of race and identity, the legacy of slavery, the colonial and postcolonial experience, and the history and politics of Antigua, Barbuda, and beyond.”

Following the exhibit, you are welcome to stay for light bites and further discussion until 6:30 p.m.

Families are welcome.
