Happy Families / Unhappy Families – Was Tolstoy Correct? Led by docent, Pat Spaulding
Leo Tolstoy said, “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.“ The exhibit “Born in the USSR” contains paintings that show families happily going about their daily lives, while other artists portray the effects of war, famine and alcoholism on 20th century Soviet families.
This special after-hours, interactive tour will focus on paintings depicting both types of families and will be led by Pat Spaulding, a docent at TMORA who is also a psychologist and family therapist.
