Gerald Geerlings and the Jewelled City at Central Library

GeraldGeerlings.jpgBorn in Milwaukee, Gerald Geerlings was a successful architect and writer, but also an artist who made evocative prints of American cities, depicting the skyscrapers that were the hallmark of American achievement. Among his most beautiful works are aquatints interpreting these architectural feats at night, dramatically lit against the dark sky. The Milwaukee Public Library's impressions of these dramatic prints will be discussed as examples of fine printmaking and as icons of American ambition. Presenter Andrew Stevens has been Curator of Prints, Drawings and Photographs in Madison at the University of Wisconsin's Chazen Museum since 1988. Seating is limited. Please call the Art, Music & Recreation Department at 286-3071 to register

WHEN: Saturday, March 9 2013; 2:00pm - 4:00pm
WHERE: Richard E. and Lucile Krug Rare Books Room, Central Library
