  2. Magical & Real Lecture Series: “Windmills, Water, and the Art of Peter Hurd: Lecture and Concert”

    August 18, 2018, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM @ Bassett Auditorium

    This illustrated lecture explores windmill and related imagery in the art of Peter Hurd. In paintings, watercolors, drawings, and even decorative arts, Hurd used windmills to demonstrate his love of landscape, and the critical importance of water in New Mexico and its environs. Punctuating the art and cultural history addressed in this illustrated lecture, a concert, performed by The Coverlets, will address the persistence of water, drought, and the vast American southwest as themes in popular music. Dr. Leo Mazow is the Louise B. and J. Harwood Cochrane Curator of American Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. His book Thomas Hart Benton and the American Sound was awarded the 2013 Eldredge Prize for Distinguished Scholarship in American Art, presented by the Smithsonian American Art Museum. Since 2013, Mazow has joined vocalist Brittany Stephenson in the folk-rock duo, The Coverlets.
