Earl Grey on Enid Yandell

On Tuesday afternoon, I will be at Transylvania University in Lexington offering some thoughts about Enid Yandell, Kentucky's most celebrated sculptor. My talk is related to my current research on Yandell and is being offered in conjunction with the exhibition of the sculptor group ENID: generations of sculptors which is on view at Morlan Gallery through March. 

If you're free on Tuesday at lunch time, come with me to Lexington:) 

Abstract: Enid Bland Yandell (1869—1934) achieved success in the field of large-scale sculpture from her earliest commissions in association with the World’s Fair, an international exhibit held in Chicago in 1893 aimed at attracting tourists and showcasing achievements in arts, science, and industry. This lecture will highlight some of Yandell’s accomplishments throughout her life as a means of positioning her as Kentucky’s sculptress, bachelor maid, and (other) pioneer.

The lecture begins at 12:30 at the Morlan Gallery. See here for more info.
