Event Description

In this month’s Experts Talk on the Carter (etc.) lecture, we are inspired by the exhibition Mitch Epstein: Property Rights. Hear about the art of change with two experts who are working to help our community reconcile with our city’s, state’s, and country’s past. Dr. Frederick Gooding Jr., Assistant Professor in the Honors College at Texas Christian University (TCU) and chair of the Race & Reconciliation Initiative at TCU, will share his expertise on how our past can inform our present actions in relation to Thomas Hovenden’s painting Chloe and Sam (1882).

Thomas Wilson Mitchell, Professor at Texas A&M University School of Law and recent winner of a MacArthur Foundation fellowship, will share his expertise on helping African-American families become property owners. He will be discussing his passions in relation to The Freedman (1863) by John Quincy Adams Ward.

Experts Talk on the Carter (etc.) is a monthly lecture series that occurs on the fourth Thursday of each month, January through April. From artists to zookeepers, bakers to scientists, join us on Zoom to hear from local experts about a work in our collection, helping us see art through the lens of their own work and passions.

The link to join the talk will be sent via Eventbrite, the Carter’s ticketing platform, in both a confirmation email upon registration as well as a reminder email before the event.
