Jean Follett, Women Artists, and the Saint Paul School of Art

December 14 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Jean Follett grew up on the East Side of Saint Paul, served in World War II, and moved to New York City, where she helped develop the postwar art scene. After returning to Saint Paul in 1962, Follett joined other local women in discussions around aesthetics, art in society, gender roles, and immigrant inclusion in the art scene. Melissa Rachleff Burtt, professor at New York University, will give a lecture on Follett’s impact on the art world, including architecture, engineering, natural history, and more. Virtual. Registration required.
