Art lectures

Wayne W. and Frances Knight Parrish Lecture by James Ballinger, The Sybil Harrington director and chief curator of the Phoenix Art Museum, lectures Sunday, May 4, 3 p.m. The lecture is included in the cost of a MFA admission

Distinguished director and scholar, Ballinger will look at “The Ever Evolving Art of the American West.”

He joined the Phoenix Art Museum in 1974 as curator of Collections, curator of American Art, and chief curator and became director in 1982. He is among the nation’s longest-serving museum directors, has served as president of the Association of Art Museum Directors, and was appointed by President George W. Bush to the National Council on the Arts. He has organized more than 40 exhibitions and led two capital campaigns that expanded the museum from 72,000 to 285,000 square feet.

Ballinger’s book Frederic Remington (1989) is considered one of the most important ever written about the artist. He holds his B.A. in American history and an M.A. in art history from the University of Kansas.

The Parrish Lecture honors the couple who donated many of the MFA’s most significant pre-Columbian objects.

The MFA at 255 Beach Drive N.E. has a world-class collection, with works by Monet, Gauguin, Renoir, Morisot, Cézanne, Rodin, O’Keeffe and many other great artists. Also displayed are ancient Greek and Roman, Egyptian, Asian, African, pre-Columbian and Native American art. The photography collection is one of the largest and finest in the Southeast.

The galleries, The Junior League Great Hall, and the Marly Room in the original building were recently renovated, completely transforming the experience of the art on view.

The Museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, until 8 p.m. on Thursday, and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is only “5 after 5” on Thursday. Regular admission is $17 for adults, $15 for those 65 and older, and $10 for students seven and older, including college students with current I.D. Children under age 7 and Museum members are admitted free. Groups of 10 or more adults pay only $12 per person and children $4 each with prior reservations.
