Free Landmark Lecture: Marietta Minnigerode Andrews: Womanhood and the Arts
From: 06:30 PM to 08:30 PM
Born to a prominent Virginia family, Marietta Minnigerode Andrews writings and artwork characterize a southern, white woman trying to make sense of the rapid changes in American society at the turn of the century. Her work, at times nostalgic, functioned as a criticism of the effects of modernity on its celebration of the past. This lecture, by Krystyn R. Moon, Ph.D., University of Mary Washington; Department of History and American Studies, will explore Andrewss work as an artist and a writer, giving insight to life in the Washington metropolitan region in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
