Remington’s Intriguing Painting The Scout: Friends or Foes Discussed October 13 at the Clark’s Next Looking at Lunchtime Gallery Talk

For Immediate Release

The next Looking at Lunchtime Gallery Talk at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute will be held Thursday, October 13 at 12:30 p.m. Assistant curator of education Danielle Steinmann will discuss Frederic Remington’s The Scout: Friends or Foes, during a half hour gallery talk.
