How does an exhibition come together? Who decides which paintings are chosen? How is Claude Monet’s Waterloo Bridge series related to Aaron Henry Gorson’s paintings of Pittsburgh industry? Meet Akemi May, the curator of Monet and the Modern City, for a casual conversation about what’s behind the art. Bring your questions about this leader of the Impressionist movement, compare our Waterloo Bridge painting with two other versions, and discuss Monet and other artists’ passion for the smoky beauty of the industrial city.
