The lectures will be held the second Wednesday of each month, from 6:30 - 8:00 pm. Wine, cheese and crackers will be served. The cost is $10.00
The first of these lectures will take place on Wednesday, October 8, with acclaimed Fort Lauderdale art collectors Pearl and Stanley Goodman as our first speakers. The Goodman's began their collection of Latin American modernists in the 1980s. They were attracted to Latin American art because it tells " a story, usually with clear political and social messages." Pearl, a retired educator, explores "different periods by each artist" she collects. Stanley, an artist and retired cardiologist, tends to "emphasize the academic merit of the work." Together they have built an impressive collection that includes masters such as Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo, Joaquín Torres García , José Clemente Orozco and Wilfredo Lam.
"Pearl and Stanley Goodman began collecting Latin American art as the field itself was being identified as an area worthy of attention, acquisition and scholarship." "In many ways, both the Goodmans and the great interest in Latin American art developed together."
