Coffee and Culture: The Art of Leisure

Tuesday, January 27

10:00 a.m.

Amanda Gillen, Director of Education

Throughout the works in exhibition Charles Courtney Curran: Seeking the Ideal runs the assumption that the people portrayed had the time to read, swim, stroll in the garden, and enjoy music. Join us for coffee, pastries and conversation about the increase in leisure time for Americans in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and how having time for relaxation changed both society and people’s everyday lives.
