At the event you will meet and learn about the life of a woman who was talented, passionate about art and determined to make it her career. Now recognized as one of the foremost American painters and printmakers of the 19th century, Mary Cassatt (who will be portrayed by Lynn Rymarz) was the only American to exhibit with the original French Impressionists. She also played a critical role in securing many of their works for American museums.
