Join Jenny Parsons, Associate Curator for a tour of the current exhibition Dreams & Memories focusing on the idea of memory.

Works of art are like time capsules. How do artists participate in capturing memories or complicating them? How does social identity inform notions of nostalgia and historical memory? Parsons will consider these questions through a discussion of works by Robert Vonnoh, Charles Ethan Porter, Thomas Nason, James Daugherty, Mark Dion, and more.

Dreams & Memories is on view at the Florence Griswold Museum October 1, 2022 – May 14, 2023.
