An illustrated lecture, “Flowers in Art,” will be presented by the Speakers Bureau of the Newark Museum at the Reeves-Reed Arboretum in Summit on May 4 at 7 p.m. A small reception will follow the presentation.
Flowers have bloomed in art from ancient Egypt to the modern day. Come and see examples in painting, sculpture, folk art, decorative arts, furniture, and jewelry—all from the museum’s collections. Learn how the artists Henry Inman, Martin Johnson Heade, Louis Comfort Tiffany’s Workshops, Florine Stettheimer, Max Weber, Marsden Hartley, Georgia O’Keeffe, Jacob Lawrence, and Robert Rauschenberg rendered flowers in their unique and magnificent ways.
The program is free for members of the arboretum and $10 for nonmembers. Register online at: www.reeves-reedarboretum.org/learn/adult-programs/. The arboretum is located at 165 Hobart Avenue in Summit.
