With the continued spread of COVID-19 worldwide, and increasingly in the United States, Tufts University President Monaco announced the preventive measures that the university will be taking in the near-term. As you can read in his message, one of the steps is to cancel all University-sponsored, connected or funded events, both on and off campus, taking place through April 30. Regrettably, this affects the Pride on the Hill Leslie Lohman event on April 9.
Although this was not an easy call to make, we are taking the necessary precautions to prioritize the health and safety of our attendees and special guests. We regret any inconvenience that this change causes for you. Please know that we will reimburse your registration fee by the end of next week.Mostly, we will miss reconnecting with you and other alumni and friends in person on April 9.
We remain deeply grateful for your understanding and continued support of Tufts University and Pride on the Hill. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
P.S.: Tufts continues to carefully monitor COVID-19. Please refer to the Tufts coronavirus webpage, which is updated regularly with information for visitors, travel guidance and other relevant news.
Join Tufts Pride on the Hill for a Reception and Gallery Viewing at the Leslie Lohman Museum in Soho. The event will feature comments by Museum Director Gonzalo Casals on Other Points of View. The newly opened exhibition explores the mid-twentieth-century artistic scene in America through the lens of View magazine, which was edited by Charles Henri Ford and Parker Tyler from 1940 to 1947, and highlighted vibrant cultural enterprises that escape notice in formalist taxonomies of modern art. The publication brought together surrealists, magic realists, neo-romantics, and self-taught artists from Europe, the U.S., Mexico, the Caribbean, and South America who cultivated alternative understandings of both the terms “American” and “modern.” This exhibition re-introduces such artists as Eugene Berman, Morris Hirshfield, Esteban Francés, Wifredo Lam, Florine Stettheimer, Pavel Tchelitchew, and Carl Van Vechten, who influenced modern art in America between the two World Wars but then—for decades, if not forever—disappeared from its history. At the same time, the Other Points of View recontextualizes (and reawakens the strangeness of) certain canonical modernists— including works by Joseph Cornell, Alexander Calder, Georgia O’Keeffe and Isamu Noguchi, who all created covers for the magazine.
Wine and cheese and crackers will be served. The Museum is wheelchair accessible. There is lift access into the Museum through the main entrance.
We look forward to seeing you there!
