Program Description


As an Emmy award-winning host and writer of the 13-show national PBS television series, Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop, and visiting artist/lecturer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Silvermine Arts Center, Dunlop’s reputation as an accomplished painter and teacher is well established. In his ARTalk, he will discuss how visual thinking enables us to be more creative. From Galileo to Newton to Edison to Einstein, these innovators visualized solutions to the problems they set before themselves. As an artist, Dunlop will explore how making images and picturing things serves as a fundamental springboard for innovation and creativity.

ARTalks are dedicated to exploring the creative process through a series that is focused on art, architecture, and design. This series is co-sponsored by the Ridgefield Library and the Ridgefield Guild of Artists.
