Monday 1/25 Short Fiction Reading Group 4:00-5:00 pm. January Selection: "Tooth and Claw" by T.C. Boyle. Published in 2004 The Best American Short Stories
"T.C. Doyle is an American writer with a PhD in nineteenth c. British Literature. He's a lifetime member of the English Department at the University of Southern California. with professional awards spanning 44 years. T.C. states "Literature can be great in all ways, but it's just entertainment like rock'n'roll or a film. If it doesn't capture you on that level, as entertainment, movement of plot, then it doesn't work. The beauty of the language, the characterization, the structure, all that's irrelevant if you're not getting to the reader on that level." Let's explore the symbolism of the story's main character's difficulty to be self-reliant and grapple with life's choices."
PDF: To be provided - Stories can also be found in The Best American Short Stories, 2004, Edited by Lorrie Moore. The SFRG will use this book for all Short Stories, in consecutive order.

Friday, January 21, 10:30 - 11:30 am. ZOOM: "Calder-Picasso" with docent Wendy Adler from the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
Pablo Picasso is considered one of the art world's most important and iconic artists, continually inventing new styles of art throughout his career. Alexander Calder is the inventor of mobiles and stabiles, two art forms that had previously not been considered "fine art." Though Alexander Calder and Pablo Picasso crossed paths infrequently, their use of line, space, and void is symbiotic. This exhibition, conceived and organized by the grandsons of these artists, highlights the parallels and differences of two giants of 20th century art.  Educationalist Wendy Adler of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston will guide you through a discussion of the traveling exhibition Calder/Picasso.

For the first time, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, is lending some 100 of the most significant paintings and works on paper from its renowned Impressionist collection for an exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, its only U.S. venue. The extraordinary collection of French Impressionist and Post-Impressionist work traces the evolution of the radical movement, from its roots in the novel, naturalistic landscapes of Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Charles François Daubigny, and other painters of the Barbizon School; to the early “optical color” experimentations in plein-air landscape painting by Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, and Alfred Sisley; to the frank depictions of modern urban life by Mary Cassatt, Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.Among the highlights is a display of 16 canvases by Monet featuring his most beloved sites. An integral aspect of the exhibition is a fascinating selection of works on paper showcasing the artists’ working methods.

Friday, February 11, 10:30 - 11:30 am. ZOOM: "Jasper Johns: Mind/Mirror" from the Philadelphia Museum of Art led by docent Greg Staurt.
Few artists have shaped the contemporary artistic landscape like Jasper Johns. With a body of work spanning seventy years, and a roster of iconic images that have imprinted themselves on the public’s consciousness, Johns at ninety-one is still creating extraordinary artworks. This vast, unprecedented retrospective features a stunning array of the artist’s most celebrated paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints as well as many lesser-known and recent works. Each a self-contained exhibition, the two related halves mirror one another and provide rare insight into the working process of one of the greatest artists of our time.

Tuesday, March 8. ZOOM: Alma Thomas "Everything is Beautiful" led by docent from the Frist Art Museum.
Everything Is Beautiful provides a comprehensive overview of the artist’s long life (1891–1978) with more than one hundred works, including her rarely seen theatrical designs and beloved abstract paintings. The exhibition will demonstrate how her artistic practices extended to every facet of her life—from community service and teaching to gardening and dress. A trailblazer, Thomas was the first Black American woman to have a solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1972, which was similar to her exhibition at Fisk University in 1971. The exhibition will be organized around multiple themes from Thomas’s experience. These themes include the context of Thomas’s Washington Color School cohort, the creative communities connected to Howard University (Vice President Kamala Harris’s alma mater), and peers who protested museums that failed to represent artists of color.

Wednesday, May 18, 11:00 - noon (Rain Date May 19). OUTING: American University Campus: Spring Garden Tour with Sharon Metcalf.
Meet at 10:45 by the flower circle near the front entrance of the School of International Service. Walking tour begins at 11 am, and ends at noon. Followed by a optional brown bag lunch in the shaded ampitheater.
Join us for this customized eco-tour in the campus quad for an hour’s walk, followed by a brown bag lunch and discussion in the open-air amphitheater shaded among canopy trees. During the past decade, AU has transformed its campus into an award-winning arboretum and garden oasis. Now ranked #4 among most beautiful US urban campuses, the 84-acre grounds include over 4,000 trees and 385 different species of plants and shrubs. Meandering through the public gardens and pocket parks visitors will find unique spaces to pause for contemplation among the flowering trees, ornamental grasses, and seasonal plantings. As part of its ‘American Dream is Green’ campaign, AU has set out to become a carbon net zero campus and is well on the way to achieving that goal by shifting energy production to clean, renewable wind power, installing solar photovoltaic panels on new LEED buildings and laying permeable pavers along campus walkways to capture water runoff. Sharon Metcalf, former AU Director of Strategic Partnerships, will lead a special LFV walking tour in May when the gardens will be in full bloom and the campus relatively quiet following commencement. Since her retirement, Sharon has continued to stay involved in university activities and helps to oversee AU’s honey-producing beehives on the green roof of the student union. Wear comfortable clothes and walking shoes so you can enjoy wandering through the various garden spots. On-campus parking is available in the SIS (School of International Service) building underground garage. Enter the garage at the intersection of Nebraska & New Mexico Avenues. Pay right after parking by inputting your license plate # in the parking machines located in the elevator lobbies of SIS garage. $2.00 per hour; cash or credit card.
