Lonesome Traveler ~ Prints by Rockwell Kent

Exhibition Talk
Rockwell Kent: The Art of Storytelling
Tues, Oct 9, 5:30 p.m.
Pepper Stetler, Associate Professor, Art history and Associate Director, The Humanities Center
Rockwell Kent’s prints tell stories on their own or as illustrations of American literature. Dr. Stetler’s talk will explore Kent’s particular way of storytelling in the context of early twentieth-century modernity, when comic strips and photographically illustrated magazines were establishing new techniques and strategies of visual narration.

Exhibition Talk
Retracing Rockwell Kent
Wed, Oct 24, 5:30 p.m.
Frederick Lewis, Associate Professor, School of Media Arts & Studies, Ohio University
Using selected clips from his definitive documentary on Rockwell Kent, filmmaker Frederick Lewis will discuss the epic life of this artist, illustrator, adventurer and social activist once known as the “stormy petrel of American art.”

Exhibition Film
A Documentary Film: Rockwell Kent
Thurs, Nov 29 | 7:30 p.m. (172 minutes)
Painter, illustrator, and author. Socialist, activist, and adventurer. One can easily apply all of those descriptors to the great 20th-century artist Rockwell Kent and still neglect the full measure of his character and accomplishments. No biographical portrait of the soulful, New York-born iconoclast has ever matched the depth of his spirituality, versatility, and wanderlust—until now. Thirteen years in the making, this film examines the origins, development, and fruition of Kent’s art while tracing his globe-spanning journey through almost nine decades of vibrant living.
