Claude Monet, the key figure in the Impressionist movement with Dr. Armando Droulers
Monday, February 26th, 2024
For this lecture, Dr. Armando will be talking about Claude Monet. The Quintessential Impressionist Claude Monet was a key figure in the Impressionist movement that transformed French painting in the second half of the nineteenth century. He was the most consistent and prolific practitioner of expressing one’s perceptions before nature, especially as applied to "plein air" painting. The term Impressionism is derived from the title of one of his works.
Armando Droulers is an art historian, educator and lecturer. He studied at Bard College, Academia de Arte Federico Brandt, New World School of the Arts and the University of Florida. He lectures extensively on art and culture at universities, museums, cultural centers, corporate events and cruise ships. He also organizes international art and culture tours and art and wine events. He has lived in Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and the United States, and speaks fluent English, French and Spanish.
Magic Mind: The Philosophy and Practice of Deception with Dr. Taylor Hagood
Monday, March 25th, 2024
“A magician is an actor playing the role of a magician”, that’s one of the most succinct and provocative descriptions of performing magicians ever written. In this lecture, Professor Hagood explores the philosophy and practice of deception throughout history and in day-to-day experiences. This journey will highlight great magicians like Houdini, Harry Blackstone, Dell O’Dell, and Randi, whose life and work have inspired the Smoke and Mirrors exhibition at the Boca Raton Museum of Art. During the lecture, Professor Hagood will elaborate how magicians order the mind to see the unseen and to navigate misdirection.
Taylor Hagood is a Professor of American Literature at Florida Atlantic University. He has published a trio of books on the writer William Faulkner, and won the C. Hugh Holman Award for Best Book in Southern Studies. Before he became a literary critic and professor, Hagood was performing magic with his parents in the mid-South. This experience has inspired his book, Secrecy, Magic, and the One-Act Plays of Harlem Renaissance Women Playwrights.
