Heavy Lies the Crown: The Brief & Brilliant Career of Basquiat (Virtual)

October 2, 2023 @ 7:00 pm

After a troubled but privileged childhood, Jean-Michel Basquiat burst onto the 1980s art scene with vision and vitality. He was quickly recognized and earned celebrity status and friendships with leading artists like Andy Warhol. Basquiat’s work often focused on subjects that were personally meaningful to him as a young black man, including race, class and police violence. Find out how his paintings, peppered with poetry and sometimes inscrutable symbols, still resonate today. This talk will be offered on Monday, October 2, 7:00 pm by Jane Oneail, the founder of Culturally Curious, an arts education consulting firm specializing in art appreciation programs.
