Thompson Lecture – Beyond the Horizon: A History of Blue

When: Tue., Oct. 20, 6-8:30 p.m. 2015

Forty percent of the world's population name blue as their favorite color. Blue also has a unique affect on us. Research has proven it can stimulate creativity and calm our psyche. This year's Thompson speaker, Dr. James Fox, will tell us why that is as he examines the vast and fascinating history of the color blue and its impact on the art world—ranging from Afghanistan to India, the discovery of lapis lazuli, to the great Renaissance painters, to Cezanne and Picasso's use of blue through to the dark side of the moon.
