Members Noontime Talk: Joe Overstreet and the Contemporary Galleries

Friday, Nov. 9, 2018 – Friday, Nov. 9, 2018

12:00 PM – 01:00 PM


American artist Joe Overstreet (b. 1933) led an itinerant life and created “nomadic art” that could be quickly rolled up for travel. Join Curatorial Assistant Haley Berkman Karren to learn more about Overstreet’s non-traditional approach to painting, his colorful tethered canvases, and their connection to other works currently on view in the contemporary galleries.

Held every Friday for a small group, Member Noontime Talks make exhibitions more intimate and reveal the collection as never before. To sign up, please RSVP to membership@menil.org. If you are not currently a Menil Member, you can learn more and join here.
