Part of The Baker Museum Lecture Series


Rangsook Yoon, Director of Curatorial Affairs, Artis—Naples, The Baker Museum


100 Iconic Works from the Permanent Collection celebrates the growth of The Baker Museum’s permanent collection over the past two decades. Included in this exhibition are small and large works by 12 trailblazing women artists: Margaret Bourke-White, Rosalind Browne, Deborah Butterfield, Leonora Carrington, Sonia Delaunay, Helen Frankenthaler, Barbara Hepworth, Georgia O’Keeffe, Marilyn Minter, Esphyr Slobodkina, Pat Steir, and Helen Torr. Yoon’s lecture highlights their careers while outlining their influential roles in the history of modern and contemporary art. It also provides an opportunity to look at their works attentively with a fresh point of view from The Baker Museum’s director of curatorial affairs.

This lecture accompanies the exhibition, 100 Iconic Works from the Permanent Collection.
