Thursday, April 13, 10:30 am

From Starry Night to The Nighthawks, there are some images that are so ubiquitous in our culture that we have stopped looking at them closely. This program delves into these iconic works and shares the secret stories behind their creation and reception. Led by art historian Jane Oneail, owner of Culturally Curious. Jane curates and delivers art appreciation programs to audiences throughout New England. She holds a Master’s in Art History from Boston University and a Master’s in Education from Harvard University. Born and raised in New Hampshire, Jane has worked at some of the state's most esteemed cultural institutions, including the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen, where she served as Executive Director, and the Currier Museum of Art, where she held the role of Senior Educator. Jane has also taught at the college level for more than a decade, most recently at Southern New Hampshire University.
