Join us on Wednesday, 03.01 at 12:15p for Art á la Carte, the FIA's FREE lunchtime program focusing on art-related issues. This week, we begin Women's History Month with an exploration of the female form through sculpture in WOMEN: THE SCULPTURE DIARIES. The feminine form has inspired artists for thousands of years—but have the results done justice or injustice to women? What specifically does the history of sculpture tell us about attitudes toward womanhood and ideas of feminine beauty? http://www.films.com/ecTitleDetail.aspx?TitleID=31166
Attendees are encouraged to bring a lunch or pick up something from The Palette Café. For more information, please call 810.234.1295 or visit http://ow.ly/EdvI308DhJq #flintarts #artalacarte #celebratewomen

Museums worldwide, including the FIA, are commemorating Auguste Rodin this year with exhibitions across the globe. Read about the man, his work, and his legend as it relates to moden sculpture in this piece from The Huffington Post contributor Natalie Hegert, who mentions the FIA, along with several other museums with Rodin exhibitions throughout the world. http://ow.ly/GUo2308M655 #flintarts #Rodin100 #sculpture

Today we celebrate the birth of American painter Thomas Moran, 180 years old today.

Part of the romantic tradition in late nineteenth-century landscape painting, Thomas Moran is most recognized for his idealized scenes celebrating the American West, though he depicted other areas, notably Florida and Long Island, New York. A work he showed in 1889, A Pastoral, is probably the Flint Institute of Arts' or a variant. In a review of the 1889 annual exhibition, a critic noted that "A Pastoral…possesses an undeniable scenic grandeur…Its only fault as a composition is that it is a little too perfect." Moran's paintings were largely produced from on-site sketches and completed in his studio. In A Pastoral Landscape, Moran has concentrated on the lushness of the low-lying Long Island marshland by giving a velvety quality to the paint surface.
