Thomas Kinkade: The Artist in the Mall

Alexis Boylan, editor of a book about the artist Thomas Kinkade will be speaking at the Henry Carter Hull Library on Thursday, April 5, 2012 at 6:00 pm.

It is estimated that there is a Thomas Kinkade image in one in twenty American homes. Yet this commercial success and popularity has not resulted in critical acceptance or acclaim in the art world. Love him or hate him, Kinkade inspires intense reactions but his art also suggests some interesting questions about the art world, contemporary definitions of beauty, and the function of art.

Alexis Boylan, editor of a new collection about Thomas Kinkade, will lead a discussion about the artist and controversy surrounding his art. Please register at hchlibrary.org.
