The public is invited to a free art lecture titled "The Southern Frontier: The Landscapes of Bartram’s Travels"
by Philip Juras, landscape artist, ecologist and landscape architect.
The lecture will feature a slide show of Juras' paintings depicting 18th Century Southern landscapes as they would have been observed by naturalist William Bartram when he traveled throughout the American South.
Sponsored by the WPI Arts & Humanities Department.
4:00 p.m. Monday, November 21.
Lecture Hall Room 104
Salisbury Laboratories Building
More information about Juras and images of his great landscape paintings can be found at:
I plan to park in the WAM visitor’s lot on Lancaster Street and walk to the WPI campus. If anyone would like me to guide you to the building and the lecture hall I could meet you at the Lancaster Street lobby at 3:45 and we can walk together.
I’ll probably grab a bite to eat afterwards at a local dive and then go to the WAM figure drawing session.
Images of three of the artist’s paintings are below.
