ARTZ @ Home with Julia and Richard
Time & Location
About The Event
We are delighted to bring you this new program in our growing catalog of online ARTZ-Connect experiences.
It is not often that we have the privilege of being invited into the home of avid art collectors to enjoy the pieces in their collection with them. That is exactly what we will be doing in our new program “ARTZ @ Home with Julia and Richard.”
Julia Converse Moore and Richard Bartholomew have been much-loved members of the ARTZ Philadelphia community since they participated in their first ARTZ @ The Museum program in 2017. When they first joined us, Julia had been living with a diagnosis of young-onset dementia for a decade. When Julia passed away in May 2020, Richard collaborated with us to develop a fitting way of honoring Julia’s memory and ensuring that one of the brightest lights of our community would continue to shine.
Julia loved looking at art and enjoyed discussions around art – both in her professional life and as an ARTZ Philadelphia program participant. Her last program with us was our first ARTZ-Connect program online, in March. It was fitting that Julia, who had ushered us into a new era of online programming, should have a very special online program in her name.
In “ARTZ @ Home with Julia and Richard,” we will be welcomed into Julia and Richard’s own art collection, perusing and discussing two or three pieces per program, and sometimes pieces from the collections of Julia’s other family members. These will include works by Julia’s great aunt, artist Mary Foote (a student of John Singer Sargent).
Richard and Julia’s sisters will be with us from time to time, co-hosting the program. Please join us for this very special pilot.
