Paul Manship is one of the great 20th-century sculptors, and he just happens to have been born in St. Paul, Minnesota.  Best known for his statue of Prometheus at Rockefeller Center in New York, the Minnesota Museum of American Art has one of the best collections of his work anywhere, over 378 works in media from bronze to plaster to working sketches and drawings.  Six of his remarkable sculptures will appear in the exhibition Our Treasures: Highlights from the Minnesota Museum of American Art, on view at Carleton College from March 30 to May 8, 2012.

This Saturday seminar will feature three lectures devoted to Manship and his great art and connections to Minnesota. Speakers are:

Kristin Makholm, Ph.D., Executive Director, Minnesota Museum of American Art; Rebecca Reynolds, American decorative arts scholar and curator of the Margaret and John Manship collection, Gloucester, Mass.; and Kristin Cheronis, sculpture conservator, Minneapolis.
