August Object of the Month
In her early 60s, artist Agnes Pelton chose to remember her father in a painting entitled Awakening (Memory of Father). Join Docent Bob Crawford in a discussion to discover what the painting reveals about Pelton’s relationship with her father and about the spiritual and philosophical underpinnings of her “desert abstractions” that form the core of the Museum’s exhibition, Agnes Pelton: Desert Transcendentalist.
