FREE Virtual Talk - Artist's Overcoming Obstacles Through Hope, Humanity, and Creativity

Image for FREE Virtual Talk - Artist's Overcoming Obstacles Through Hope, Humanity, and Creativity


In this docent-led talk you will explore major works by artists who triumphed despite human setbacks and prevailed through hope, humanity and creativity. Ludwig van Beethoven’s usage of “Ode to Joy” within his last symphony symbolizes his commitment to resilience despite becoming deaf. Likewise, other successful artists, including several painters represented in the Timken collection, have overcome various obstacles and continued to create great works of art. These artists all adapted to their situations with purposefulness and adaptability. They did not dwell on the negative but moved forward in their artistry. We are fortunate to have the gift of this timeless art!
