The Value of a Work of Art Can Be Measured By the Harm Spoken of It

The Frye Art Museum is proud to present a three-part series examining key literary and film works by author David Shields, contextualized using the touchstones of lived experience, art, and politics. Shields will be joined by special guests from the fields of literature, journalism, and sports.

Shields received the 2015 James W. Ray Venture Distinguished Artist Award, which is funded by the Raynier Institute & Foundation through the Frye Art Museum | Artist Trust Consortium. The award supports and advances the creative work of outstanding artists living and working in Washington State and culminates in a presentation at the Frye Art Museum.

No advance registration is required for these free programs.
