Athenaeum Salon — The Chazan Collection

(10.21) The Providence Athenaeum, in partnership with the RISD Museum, presents “Collecting for Life.”  Jan Howard will discuss the artists and works in the collection of Dr. Joseph A. Chazan.

For almost ten years, Chazan has produced “Networks,” a series of videos featuring Rhode Island artists discussing their working process and artworks. For decades, he has devoted himself to collecting the work of these Rhode Island artists and has shared this artwork with patients at his clinics, as well as with the public through his donations to the RISD Museum – the museum’s catalogue of works donated by Chazan will be published in September 2016.

Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs Jan Howard moderates this discussion between Chazan and featured ‘Networks’ artists Nicole Chesney, Timothy Philbrick, and Andrew Raftery.

(See a screening of NetWorks 1:30pm, Sunday, October 30, Metcalf Auditorium.)

Free and open to the public, 5pm to 7pm, Friday, October 21, Providence Athenaeum, 251 Benefit Street, (directions)
