Whitman Lecture This Afternoon

The American Art Museum and National Portrait Gallery start their interesting American Pictures Distinguished Lecture series today. The series pairs great works of art with leading figures of contemporary American culture. Gurganus discusses Thomas Eakins’s 1888 portrait of Walt Whitman in the building where the poet nursed wounded soldiers during the Civil War. 4:30 p.m., with tickets distributed an hour in advance.

See you there!
