For the first Around the Table Book Group of 2021, we will discuss “Sara Tyson Hallowell: Pioneer Curator and Art Agent in the Gilded Age” by ArtTable DC member Carolyn Kinder Carr. Carr will be joining us to present her book and take part in engaging conversation.

The book chronicles the life and career of Sara Tyson Hallowell, a late 19th century well-born woman who was a curator and advocate of modern art. Though her accomplishments have often been overlooked, Carr fully acknowledges and honors her pivotal contributions to the field of contemporary art exhibition. Carolyn Kinder Carr ensures that Sara Tyson Hallowell’s legacy is recognized and not forgotten.

Carolyn Kinder Carr is the Deputy Director of the National Portrait Gallery and the author of “Gaston Lachaise: Portrait Sculpture” (Smithsonian Institution Press, 1985).

Thank you to Ruth Abrahams, ArtTable DC Committee Member at Large for organizing this program.
