Farewell to the Muses: Through the Lens of Lee Miller

The Women of the Surrealist Movement struggled to define their own identities as artists, poets, musicians, photographers. Surrounded by strong, influential male influence, their artistic achievements were remarkable feats of rising feminine independence. Our final event this season takes place at beautiful historic Lougheed House, an impressive sandstone mansion built in 1891, considered to be one of the finest residences in the Canadian northwest during its cultural heyday. 

Featuring:

Jason Nedecky, baritone

Olga Primak, actor

Kathleen van Mourik, piano

Charles Foreman, piano
