More Than Just a Name: Walters, Rubens, Ford, Duke, Bourne, and Others
Conversation between Gary Vikan, Director of the Walters Art Museum, and William Johnston, Senior Curator at Large and Director of Walters Archives (Emeritus)
Price: $10, Seniors and Students: $5, Members: Free
If you decided to found a museum, as a collector you'd have to make significant decisions: what to collect, how much can be spent, what are other collectors grabbing up, etc.
Who are Walters, Rubens, Ford, Duke, and Bourne?
William Johnston and Gary Vikan will discuss complex histories that expose the beauty, drama, and behind-the-scenes aspects of many works (and names) involved in the Walters collection.

Held in conjunction with our special exhibition Designed for Flowers: Contemporary Japanese Ceramics, this program, one in a series of three, will feature masters from Ikebana International demonstrating the art of Ikebana for a live audience.
