Spencer Museum of Art: A Conversation with Marilyn Stokstad
New Generation Society of Lawrence (NGSL members only)

Thu., Sep. 4, 2014, 1:30pm - 3:00pm
Location: Spencer Museum of Art

*NGSL Member Exclusive*Marilyn Stokstad, the Judith Murphy Distinguished Professor of Art (retired) and former Director of the Museum of Art at KU is going to visit with us about her years at KU.  She was hired by Franklin Murphy in 1958 to teach at KU and has been here ever since.  Though she has retired from teaching, she is still very involved with her publication of Art History, the definitive book for students at colleges and universities across the country and for those interested in art.  The book is in its 5th edition or maybe its 6th by now. Marilyn was the first female director of the Museum and recently endowed the position of Director of the Spencer Museum of Art.  She has many stories about her years with the Museum and KU and about the writing of her book, probably one of the heaviest books in a students backpack!  It is safe to say, she is a KU superstar, and a delight to know.
