The Leepa-Ratter Museum of Art to Offer the Decades Series Film Lecture
TARPON SPRINGS – To foster a greater understanding of and appreciation for the 20th century, the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art will offer spring programs that focus on the social, political, cultural and artistic developments of the decade from 1930 to 1940. The Decades Series was created in 2002 and reflects the museum’s mission to nurture interest in 20th century art.
On Thursday, April 30, at 7 p.m., St. Petersburg College Associate Professor of Communications and Humanities, Sue Cornett, will present an overview of the artistic and technical developments of film’s “Golden Age of the 1930s,” a time when European filmmakers came to the United States to escape the threats of war and Hollywood provided opportunities for a new generation of actors.
The lecture will be held in the Museum Auditorium and is free.
