Pablo's Virtual Coffeehouse
Discover New Art and Artists with Marsha Pippenger
Grab your favorite beverage and join the DSA for a presentation on some new and maybe not-so-new artists and their work by Marsha Pippenger. Pablo's Coffeehouse is an extension of a column she wrote for a local magazine and is a space for the community to be introduced to artists and their work. She will be discussing the work of Hilma af Klint, William Bailey, and Chiura Obata on May 14.

...Imagine. An obscure coffeehouse in early 20th century Paris…tucked away down a narrow side street on the Left Bank, crumbling steps leading down into a small, dark space, pungent with the aroma of strong coffee and flaky pastries. Picture now the patrons inside…Pablo Picasso, a small, square, stubborn but extremely talented Spanish expatriot painter, Georges Braque, another talented artist and contemporary of Picasso, the writer George Bernard Shaw, the musician Igor Stravinsky, and nameless others: writers, artists and musicians. Hands gesture wildly and voices collide as they converse in animated fashion.
This is Pablo’s Coffeehouse, where artists meet.
A vastly unusual coffeehouse, as you will notice. Not only do Picasso and others of his time gather here to trade ideas and opinions, but others too, artists of other eras, both past and future, artists traveling in and out of time. Let’s listen in… Marsha Pippenger
