The Distinguished Lecturers Series invites noted scholars to discuss the rich layers of history and ideas underlying the Delaware Art Museum’s collections. In the early 1960s, Yoko Ono bridged the art worlds between New York and Tokyo, facilitating creative artistic exchange among artists of both worlds. This talk by Dr. Midori Yoshimoto will highlight the imaginative work of Yoko Ono during the 1960s. It will also lay out the brief history of avant-garde performance in Japan and introduce Ono’s contemporaries.
After a sold-out lecture in 2012, Robert Wittman, the FBI’s National Art Crime Team founder and author of a New York Times bestseller, returns with tales of his 20-year career recovering more than $300 million in stolen art. Join Wittman for this fun and informative presentation on notorious art heists and daring undercover recoveries. Space is limited. For questions, please call 302.351.8506.
