Impressionism: Game Changers and Boundary Breakers

Lynn Orr, Curator, Birth of Impressionism, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco
Heather Champ, Director of Community, Flickr
Ken Holden, Fine Arts Photographer
Ken Goldberg, New Media Director, Berkeley Center for New Media - Moderator

Calling all game changers, boundary breakers, iconoclasts and troublemakers: Dare to be impressionable. Don't miss an evening celebrating the ideas and artists who keep pushing society forward. Despite what some might think, the painters responsible for the Impressionist works of the later 19th century were the rebels of Paris.
 
We will be celebrating in the most proper way, making Van Gogh proud, with complimentary Absinthe cocktails provided by Pernod. Join us for a discussion on how these imaginatively disruptive artists and technologies - pariahs of their day - redefined the world.
