Interview: Alan Fern “Portraits”

Print More

Long before the advent of the camera, painted or sculpted portraits were relied on to define the personalities in American public life and define the image of a fledgling nation. Tonight in Middlebury, the history and influence of portraits past and present will be discussed in a lecture by the retired director of the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.

Alan Fern will speak about “American Faces: Portraits in Many Forms” at the Ilsley Public Library in Middlebury on Wednesday evening. To hear Mitch Wertlieb’s interview with Fern, click on the “Listen” icon.
