“Rockwell Kent” with filmmaker
6:30 p.m. Reception, 7 p.m. Lecture
Painter, illustrator, and author. Socialist, activist, and adventurer. One can easily apply all of those descriptors to the great 20th-century artist Rockwell Kent and still neglect the full measure of his character and accomplishments. A film thirteen years in the making, Kent is rendered here in the vast, varied geographic locations that fascinated him, in frank conversations with those who knew him intimately, and in the beauty of his paintings, prints, and writings. A documentary by Frederick Lewis, 2005, 173 min.
