Meet Us in Denver!

The College of Arts and Science is stretching far Beyond Campus and heading to Denver on Jan. 4, 2020. We hope you will join us!

The Rocky Mountain Tigers (Denver Chapter of the Mizzou Alumni Association) is hosting “Mizzou at Monet” at The Denver Art Museum to bring together alumni and a world-class exhibition of Claude Monet. In addition to small-group tours through the exhibit, MU Professor of Art History Michael Yonan will share his insights into one of Monet's most beautiful and evocative paintings.

Yonan’s lecture will examine the historical and artistic importance of a single street in Paris, the Boulevard des Capucines. Painted over the winter of 1873–1874, Monet’s Boulevard des Capucines is now in the collection of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri. It shows the boulevard on a wintery day, but it also reveals the beginnings of Impressionism as a movement to contend with in the Parisian art world of the 19th century. Q&A will follow.
