Dr. Hirsh lectured on Storm King ion NY’s Hudson Valley, a sculpture park I have never visited. I am eagerly waiting to see the final two sessions which will cover sculpture gardens, some of which I have visited, so I can determine which are worth my time driving to.
This was a most enjoyable course. Jennie Hirsh clearly had put in a lot of thought and effort into her presentations. She exhibited a broad and deep knowledge of the artists and their works. We especially enjoyed her talk on Glenstone since we live in Washington, DC, where our two previous attempts to tour the premises were thwarted by weather and the pandemic. Now we'll be able to go far better informed.
Jennie is so knowledgeable but has such a way that when she mentions artist not known to me, I have the feeling to explore and investigate. So it inspires research. She is terrific and I thoroughly enjoyed her presentation especially her appreciation of the works.
I have thoroughly enjoyed all of Dr. Jennie Hirsh’s seminars and have learned so much about contemporary art and the artists who have created the works. This course was even more enjoyable because we not only learned about the works but visited the fabulous outdoor sculpture gardens where they reside. Dr. Hirsh is not only knowledgeable and interesting but has a special gift of conveying her enthusiasm about the art to her listeners.
This was a course filled with so many interesting sculptures to learn about. I think that modern and contemporary sculpture is the hardest to understand and Jennie tackled the subject really well. Having been to Storm King and The Grounds for Sculpture, I wanted to know more. And now I can’t wait to go to Glenstone.
