Opening Lecture | From Death Valley to Everest: Making Art in Wild Places

Event time: 
Saturday, June 8, 2019 - 2:00pm
Description: 
Tony Foster has visited and painted a wide range of breathtaking landscapes around the world, from Death Valley—America’s lowest, hottest, and driest national park—to Mount Everest, Earth’s highest mountain above sea level. Elected a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in 1994, Foster received the RGS Cherry Kearton Memorial Medal in 2001 “for his artistic portrayal of the world’s wilderness.” The artist will discuss his many adventures over the years as an artist-explorer, explaining why he cares so deeply about the remaining uncultivated regions of our endangered planet.
 
This program is presented with support of the Yale Center for British Art through the generosity of the Terry F. Green 1969 Fund for British Art and Culture.
