The Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art opens a new, multi-disciplinary center in late February 2020. Called The Momentary, the repurposed factory will house galleries, theaters, studios, an outdoor amphitheater--and a cafe plus rooftop bar! Haynes is part of the team of curators developing programs for this new extraordinary facility in our region. Let’s learn about the making of The Momentary from one of its lead curators. Murdock Society members will travel to see it in early June.


Dr. Lindsay Cook, Visiting Assistant Professor of Art, Vassar College

Tuesday, May 5
5:30 pm complimentary reception in the Boeing Foyer
6:15 pm illustrated talk with the artist in the Howard E. Wooden Lecture Hall
7:30 pm optional dinner immediately following

Last April, tragedy struck Paris' Notre-Dame Cathedral--one of the world’s most beloved buildings--as fire broke out. Experts assessed the damage and contemplated restoration. Previous research inspired hope--the late art historian Andrew Tallon had recently completed a vast scanning project, producing a highly detailed digital record of Notre-Dame.

As a special and timely talk, scholar Lindsay Cook will explore this remarkable digital record and its contribution to Notre-Dame's restoration with Murdock members. She is currently translating Tallon's research into English, and her resulting book, titled Notre-Dame of Paris Throughout Time, will be published this spring. Come learn about Notre Dame and the challenge to bring it back to life.
