Becoming Mary Sully

2019 Phil Talk “Becoming Mary Sully”
Like a Ted Talk, but with the famous Phil Deloria
A box of recently discovered colorful and dynamic abstract triptychs became a familial quest in unraveling “personality prints” of American public figures like Amelia Earhart, Babe Ruth and Gertrude Stein. Deloria has reclaimed that work from obscurity; exploring the stunning portfolio through the lenses of modernism, industrial design, Dakota women’s aesthetics, mental health, ethnography, anthropology, primitivism, and the American Indian politics of the 1930s. All are welcome to this evening of discovery and insight, free of charge.


When:
Wednesday, August 21, 2019 7:00 PM thru 08:00 PM
