David McCullough: The Greater Journey

Lecture

This lecture is at capacity. To be added to a waiting list, please call 817-989-5030 or email visitors@cartermuseum.org.

Acclaimed author David McCullough will discuss his book The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris in conjunction with the exhibition Samuel F. B. Morse’s Gallery of the Louvre and the Art of Invention.

McCullough is twice winner of the Pulitzer Prize, twice winner of the National Book Award, and has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award. The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris, the number one New York Times best seller, has been called “dazzling,” “an epic of ideas … history to be savored.” His previous work, 1776, has been acclaimed “a classic;” and John Adams, published in 2001, remains one of the most praised and widely read American biographies of all time.

Registration is required. Registration for this program opens June 1. Call 817.989.5030 or email visitors@cartermuseum.org to reserve a seat.

Please note: This program will be held across the street from the museum in the W. E. Scott Theatre at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center located at 1300 Gendy Street.

This program is made possible by an anonymous donor.

Samuel F. B. Morse's Gallery of the Louvre and the Art of Invention

Special Exhibition Tour

Gather in the exhibition space to experience a guided interactive tour of Samuel F. B. Morse’s iconic painting Gallery of the Louvre (1831–1833) along with a selection of works from the museum’s own collection that, like Morse’s painting, feature museum and gallery spaces as their subject matter. Though Morse is most widely known as a scientist and inventor, he was a leading artist of his time. Filled with his careful and personal selection of the Louvre’s finest works, all of which he painstakingly reproduced in miniature, the painting is a signal work of transatlantic exchange intended to connect American audiences with great European artworks.
