The Studio as Muse
February 13, 2019, 4pm to 6pm
The Dedalus Foundation is pleased to present a panel discussion organized by Historic Artists Homes and Studios (HAHS). The conversation will explore the ways artists’ workplaces have stimulated the artists’ creativity and enriched scholarship about them. The panelists will speak to how the specificity of place, along with vistas and material goods, can provoke fresh insights and learning.
HAHS is an Associate Sites program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, dedicated to preserving and interpreting the places where art was made. Composed of over 30 independent museums that were the homes and working studios of American artists, all HAHS sites have been well preserved and are open to the public; each is vetted to assure that the property meets standards of integrity and authenticity. HAHS promotes awareness of artists’ homes to the general public, presenting them as special kinds of museums, where visitors can learn about the power of place in relation to artistic inspiration.
