Christy MacLear, executive director of the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation, will present a talk, “New Takes on Legacy: The Artist, The Architect, and The Historic Home,” on Sunday, July 20, at 4 pm in the John Drew Theater at Guild Hall, 158 Main Street, East Hampton. The lecture is sponsored by the John H. Marburger III Fund of Stony Brook University. All are invited to a reception at the Pollock-Krasner House from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm following the lecture.
Before joining the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation in 2011, MacLear was founding executive director of the Philip Johnson Glass House. In her lecture, she will address the innovative ways in which the material legacies of Rauschenberg, Johnson and others can be used for public benefit and contribute to ongoing creative activity.
With a degree in urban design from Stanford University and an MBA from Wharton, where she received a Barnes fellowship, MacLear has been a professor in the graduate program of Arts Administration for the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and serves on the Board of the Municipal Arts Society and Advisory Councils of Stanford University, Harvard University and Cranbrook Academy.
