Anthony W. Lee will deliver the 2002 Eldredge Prize lecture at 4 p.m. on October 16 when he will speak on "Orientals and Orientalists in the American Scene." Lee, an associate professor at Mount Holyoke College, won this year's Charles C. Eldredge Prize for Distinguished Scholarship in American Art for his book Picturing Chinatown: Art and Orientalism in San Francisco (University of California Press, 2001). A panel of jurors recognized the book as an outstanding study of the images made at an important site of cultural encounter.
The Eldredge Prize is awarded annually by the Smithsonian American Art Museum, with the support of its American Art Forum. This year the lecture is co-sponsored by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program. The lecture will take place in the Grand Salon of SAAM's Renwick Gallery, which is located on Pennsylvania Avenue at 17th Street NW, Washington, D.C. A reception will follow.
If you plan to attend, please RSVP to the number below or register via e-mail.
Further information about the Eldredge Prize and a complete list of past winners is available on the museum's web site. The next deadline for nominations is Dec. 1, 2002.
