Hugh O'Donnell, Professor of Art, School of Visual Arts, and Kristie Eden O'Donnell (CFA '09) discuss the creation of the Huntington Fire Station Mural, a site-specific art collaboration with the Boston Fire Department. Through artists working directly with the community to bring visibility and remembrance to contemporary life, the long tradition of history painting comes alive in this presentation. A reception will be held following the lecture. *Part of the Citizen Artist Series, a three-lecture series pairing faculty and student guest speakers with the CFA community to present their experiences and endeavors as Citizen Artists.
