Wanda M. Corn
Artists’ Homes and Studios as Archive and Romance

Join nationally renowned art historian Dr. Wanda M. Corn, Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor Emerita in Art History at Stanford University, as she explores American artists’ homes and studios that, like the Cole property, have been preserved and opened to the public. She asks what these special places can teach us about the creative process and the history of art. Dr. Corn, chair of the advisory council for the Historic Artists’ Homes & Studios program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, is a scholar of late 19th- and early 20th-century American art and photography. Active as a visiting curator and scholar, she has produced numerous books and exhibitions, including The Great American Thing: Modern Art and National Identity, 1915-1935.
