“Mary Cassatt: Painting the Modern Woman” - (1 hour, 33 minutes) - Exhibition on Screen - Mary Cassatt made a career painting the lives of the women around her. Her radical images showed them as intellectual, feminine, and real, which was a major shift in the way women appeared in art. Presenting her astonishing prints, pastels and paintings, this film introduces us to the often- overlooked impressionist whose own career was as full of contradiction as the women she painted. She was a classically trained artist but chose to join a group of Parisian radicals – the Impressionists – a movement that transformed the language of art. The world’s most eminent Cassatt curators and scholars help tell this riveting tale of great social and cultural change; a time when women were fighting for their rights and the language of art was completely re-written. Playing Thursday, March 23 at 7 p.m. and Friday, March 24 at 2 p.m. Tickets: $15 adult, $13 member, and $5 youth 18 and under.
