2017-2018 BENJAMIN WEST LECTURE - Women and the Dreamwork

  • LPAC Cinema 500 College Avenue Swarthmore, PA, 19081 United States (map)

The Benjamin West Lecture, made possible by gifts from members of the Class of 1905 and other friends of the College, is given annually on some phase of art.  It is the outgrowth of the Benjamin West Society, which built up a collection of paintings, drawings, and prints, which are exhibited, as space permits, in the buildings on campus.  The lecture was named for the American artist who was born in a house that stands on the campus and became president of the Royal Academy.
