Event Description

Alex Mann, Director of Curatorial Affairs and Chief Curator at Telfair Museums, will talk with Carter curator Maggie Adler about how the Sargent, Whistler, and Venetian Glass: American Artists and the Magic of Murano exhibition came together. They’ll also share information about the artists’ time in Italy and how Venice inspired their artistic experimentation at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th. Following their conversation, both speakers will participate in a Q&A. Seating for the talk will be first-come, first-served.

Crawford Alexander Mann III is Director of Curatorial Affairs and Chief Curator at Telfair Museums in Savannah, Georgia.

Prior curatorial service includes the Chrysler Museum of Art (Norfolk, Va.) and the RISD Museum of Art (Providence, R.I.). He holds degrees from Yale University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and has received research fellowships from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Terra Foundation for American Art, the Corning Museum of Glass, and other organizations.
