Tour & Conversation: ‘Theodora Allen: Saturnine’ at the Driehaus Museum


Please join ArtTable for a tour of Theodora Allen: Saturnine at the Driehaus Museum. We will be joined by Anna Musci, Executive Director, and Stephanie Cristello, Curator. After the tour and conversation about the exhibition, Anna and Stephanie will speak about their respective roles at the museum.

The exhibition marks the latest iteration of the Museum’s newest initiative: A Tale of Today, which features work by leading contemporary artists to expand the immersive experience and to shape our understanding of the world through the art, architecture, design, and cultural history of the Nickerson Mansion, the Museum’s home. Curated by Stephanie Cristello, Theodora Allen: Saturnine derives its title from figure of Saturn and its historical association with melancholy, often referred to as the curse of artists. Visitors to the Museum will see Allen’s luminous and meditative compositions, filled with a lexicon of snakes, planets, moons, and plant life – motifs that draw from ancient Greek mythology, literature, fin-de-siècle Europe, and the zeitgeist of 1960s California.

ArtTable is the foremost professional organization dedicated to advancing the leadership of women in the visual arts. Through our membership network and community initiatives, we expand professional opportunities for women from diverse backgrounds and at all stages of their careers, supporting and fostering a stronger future for all women in the arts.
