Registration will close on Thursday, March 30, 2023, at 9:00 a.m. (central daylight time).
Program participants will have the opportunity to hear directly from the special exhibition curator as he discusses representations of hunting dogs from the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries. These works of art highlight the importance of dogs in the enjoyment of the hunting adventure and the success of the hunt.
“We are very pleased that the curator of the exhibition, James Clifton, will give this presentation. We are also very grateful that the Sarah Campbell Blaffer Foundation makes it possible for Dr. Clifton to participate in our programming. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about works of art in ‘A Noble Pastime,’” commented Sarah E. Boehme, Stark Museum of Art Curator.
