Hood 1918 Curator of Academic Programming, Hood Museum of Art

The 1966 painting Farewell by American artist George Tooker, which reflects on the loss of his mother, will be the launching point for a timely and sensitive discussion of love, loss, and rites of passage. We will also look at the differences among societies and cultures in coming to terms with the death of a loved one, and the role of art and ritual in mediating the transition between the living and the dead.
