HAMMOND – The free spring series of "Let's Talk: Art," sponsored jointly by Southeastern's Department of Fine and Performing Arts, the Hammond Regional Arts Center, and the Friends of Sims Library, continues on Wednesday, April 9, at 5 p.m. at the Hammond Regional Arts Center.
David Hanson, department head and professor of English, will discuss "Charles Dickens and William Hogarth: Image and Word."
"In Victorian Britain, industrialization made the "sister arts" of image and word widely available. Few exploited the connections more inventively than Charles Dickens," Hanson said. "This talk explores how Dickens relied on his favorite artist, the eighteenth-century painter and printmaker William Hogarth, to make the leap from the early sketches to the first novel, 'Oliver Twist.'"
The Hammond Regional Arts Center is located at 217 E. Thomas Street in downtown Hammond, directly across from Southeastern's Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts. For more information, please contact Sims Library Director Eric Johnson 549-3962.
