The Westlake-West Shore Arts Council presents a program on “Impressionism from Manet to Monet” by Art Historian Sean Crum on Tuesday, April 5, at 7 p.m., at Porter Public Library, 27333 Center Ridge Road.
Sean will share his knowledge and experience on Impressionism and its impact on the art world, focusing on Edouard Manet, Pierre August Renoir, Edgar Degas and Claude Monet and their works. These four 18th century artists are contemporaries who were born within a nine year span, 1831 to 1841, and were central figures in the Impressionist Movement.
This interesting and informative program, which the WWAC offers free to the community, will illuminate the history and detail around these four artists and their treasured paintings.
Sean, a professional artist and musician for over 40 years and a professional art historian for 30 years, received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Cleveland State University and a Master of Art degree from Case Western Reserve University. He retired from teaching art and art history for North Ridgeville High School in 2012. He is currently teaching art history for the Center for Life Long Learning at Lorain County Community College.
