“Time for Impressionism”
An Art History Lecture with Ken Keffer
Tuesday, February 27 | 12pm to 1pm
$13 at the door

Join Ken Keffer, Centre College Professor Emeritus of French and German for a highly-enjoyable “wasted” hour of arts appreciation! The “time” of Impressionist painting includes the hours of making, exhibiting and viewing the works.  It is also a theme in the paintings themselves.  What is that theme?  What is that time?  It is the idleness of strolling, dancing and sitting in the afternoon and evening light.  It is the time we call “wasted.”

This is the third lecture in a four-week Arts Appreciation series featuring guest presenters from the Centre College faculty. Each lecture is $13 at the door, or register for the four-week series for $40.
