4th and final Class in the Series: Gertrude Stein and Her Circle —
Gertrude Stein fueled the avant-garde. Stein’s own vision and her influence on the Cone sisters helped finance the genius artists of her circle, helping to establish those artists as the superstars of their time. Stein’s life and actions are inextricably tied to her sexual orientation, and the sexual orientations and gender identities of those whom she gathered, discovered, influenced, and encouraged. This exciting class will explore Stein’s relationships, and the art world of Paris between the wars.
The Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center is at 522 West Maple Street - directly behind 520 Hamilton Street in Allentown. Look for the rainbow flags! The Center is Between 5th and 6th Streets and Hamilton and Walnut Streets. Enter the Community Parking Deck right next door from either Walnut Bwt 6th and 5th or enter from 6th between Walnut and Hamilton.
This class had been set as the 4th class but was pushed back to this date due to bad weather. The class that was set as the 5th Class that was going to be about Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art will be moved to the next set of classes that will probably be in April or May of 2018.
