In conjunction with the special exhibition American Impressionism: The Lure of the Artists' Colony, Scott Schweigert, Curator of Art and Civilization at the Reading Public Museum, will discuss the emergence of artists’ colonies during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. He will show how these colonies had an effect on artists’ creativity, including the ability to collaborate, teach, and experiment in their work. The artists’ colonies of Cos Cob and Old Lyme in Connecticut; Cape Cod, Cape Ann, and Rockport in Massachusetts; and New Hope in Pennsylvania, are among those that will be examined.
