Join Ms. Peterson for a series of two talks (October, Mondays, 16 & 23) to explore Christian people, institutions, and writings in the colonial and revolutionary periods. Learn how Christianity shaped the way colonists and early Americans thought about themselves, others and their “promised land”: America.
Join Mr. Kreifeldt for a series of three talks to learn why 40% of the art in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art is fake according to its former director, Thomas Hoving (1967–1977). Some of the reasons being, genuine works that become misattributed as something else; or works so extensively restored that little of the original remains; or works purposely made to deceive. John will examine a particularly notorious example of each of Hoving’s three types with lessons to be learned.

About Cody Bratt
Cody Bratt (b. 1982) is a San Francisco-born and based artist. His father, a photoengraver, and his mother, a multimedia artist, inspired his love of photography and book making, in particular. He holds a BA in Rhetoric with a formal concentration in Narrative and Image from the University of California, Berkeley (2005). Shying away from a literal approach, Cody’s photography employs primarily non-linear emotional or psychological approaches to exploring subjects and concepts. Unreliable memories, displacement, loss and coming of age feature centrally in Cody’s work.
Wig Heavier Than a Boot brings together photography and video by David Johnson and poetry by Philip Matthews. As we reveal Petal—a persona as whom Philip writes, and whom David photographs—the project crosses art-making rituals with isolated performances in domestic spaces and pastoral landscapes. Taken together, the images and poems reveal surprising relationships between character, observer, and author. The photographs provide one record of Petal and Philip’s personalities, blurring art-historical feminine / masculine postures and gestures. The poems provide another which elaborates upon the lived experience of performing or, sometimes, obscuring or protecting the self from being seen. Thus, a continuous exchange between photographer and two subjects in one body reflects the complications of power and gender expression through the history of photography.
