David Lubin will deliver the 2004 Eldredge Prize lecture at 4 p.m. on October 7, when he will speak on the topic "Life After Death: JFK, Dallas, and Modern Visual Culture." Lubin, Charlotte C. Weber Professor of Art at Wake Forest University, won this year's Charles C. Eldredge Prize for Distinguished Scholarship in American Art for his book Shooting Kennedy: JFK and the Culture of Images (University of California Press, 2003). A panel of three jurors recognized the book as an outstanding study of American postwar visual culture and photojournalistic images of Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy during the decade of their marriage from 1953 to 1963.
The Eldredge Prize is awarded annually by the Smithsonian American Art Museum, with the support of its American Art Forum. 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 reserve a place by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
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, 2004.
