Book Club Discussion Group
Thu, August 22nd, 2019 at 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Join fellow book lovers as we read and discuss fiction and nonfiction books related to art, artists, art museums, NOMA’s collections and exhibitions. Our full 2019 schedule and reading list has been announced.
Organized by NOMA’s Felix J. Dreyfous Library, the Book Club is an informal group. You do not have to attend every meeting and we understand if you have to leave a discussion or program early. The book club offers several types of programs: a book discussion group that meets once a month (no reading in December), curatorial programs, field trips, and Meet the Author receptions. Most book club programs start promptly at noon, but please arrive at 11:30 a.m. if you wish to bring a sack lunch or meet beforehand. NOMA will provide water and soft drinks.
RSVP for the meetings you wish to attend so we can prepare the meeting space.
Please contact NOMA’s Education Department at 504.658.4128 or firstname.lastname@example.org for information about joining the NOMA Book Club.
August 2019 Selection
The Brilliant History of Color in Art by Victoria Finlay
J. Paul Getty Museum, 2014, ISBN: 978-1606064290
The Brilliant History of Color in Art by Victoria Finlay covers the development of art and color through the ages. Packed with fascinating detail and beautiful illustrations, this book combines colorful imagery with smartly-written text. Most of the publication’s 166 color illustrations represent works from the J. Paul Getty Museum collections. They exemplify the power of pictures to convey meaning, and Finlay’s informative text blends seamlessly with these high-quality reproductions. The matte-finished pages show them to good advantage. —Foreword Review
