Extended Description: UPDATE: due to museum closure this week, this event is now online only. Alexandra Letvin, assistant curator of European and American art, and Hannah Wirta Kinney, assistant curator of academic programs, present a Tuesday Tea on their exhibition DIS/POSSESSION. Their discussion focuses on Frederick E. Cohen’s painting, Bentley Simons Runyan Family (ca. 1857), on view in the King Sculpture Court. Participants will be invited to engage in a dialogue about the land we now call Ohio through the questions raised by Cohen’s portrait of this settler colonial family. | This free program will be broadcast on Zoom using this link: https://oberlin.zoom.us/j/89884118458 | Please note: the Zoom link will not be live until the event begins. | [Image Credit: Frederick E.
