The Hudson Library & Historical Society continues a series of artist biographical lectures on Sept. 19 at 7 p.m. when local art historian Felicia Zavarella Stadelman reveals the drama, passion, obsession and tragedy behind the hidden lives of some of the world's most famous artists.
Learn which two artists have Broadway musicals based on their paintings and who made a guest appearance on "The Love Boat." Find out who suggested that firing a gun was an acceptable method of getting people to stop asking questions and who had to be bribed to take a bath. Stadelman promises that "you will never view art the same way again."
Stadelman, inspired by her enthusiasm for art, has dedicated her career to sharing the fascinating details of the lives and works of some of our most recognized and influential artists. "Through the Eyes of the Artist" was a series originally created by Stadelman with a grant provided by the Cleveland Museum of Art to help bring art into the lives of children. It has evolved into a program for all ages to provide a deeper insight into the enigmatic appeal of some of our favorite artists.
