Photographer Gail Levin on Jewish Women and American Art, April 22

Dr. Gail Levin, noted specialist on feminist art and the first curator of the Edward Hopper Collection at the Whitney Museum of American Art, will present her lecture, “Jewish Women and American Art,” in the University’s Samuel & Bettie Roberts Memorial Lecture on Jewish Art on Wednesday, April 22, at 7:30 p.m. in the Dolan School of Business Dining Room.

Levin is the author, editor, or co-editor of over 17 books. In Hopper’s Places (1985), she includes her own photographs of actual sites portrayed in Hopper’s paintings, and analyzes the changes Hopper made in his paintings over time. Levin’s most recent book is a biography of the abstract expressionist artist Lee Krasner (2011). In 2007 she published a biography of the American feminist artist Judy Chicago.

Levin’s own photographs and photo collages were exhibited in a solo show at the National Association of Women Artists at its New York Gallery in 2014. She continues to organize exhibitions for museums internationally.

Levin is Distinguished Professor of Art History, American Studies, Women's Studies, and Liberal Studies at Baruch College of the City University of New York. She received her bachelor’s degree from Simmons College, a master’s in fine art from Tufts University, and a doctorate in art history in 1976 from Rutgers University.

Hosted by the Carl and Dorothy Bennett Center for Judaic Studies, the event is free and open to the public; however, seating is limited. Please call the Center at 203-254-4000, ext. 2066 or email Elaine Bowman to reserve your seat.
