Lecture / Discussion  |  Dr. Edna M. Lindemann: A Legacy

Thursday, September 1, 2016, 7–8 pm

Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium  

In 1966, Dr. Edna M. Lindemann founded the Burchfield Art Center, creating one of the few museums in America dedicated to an individual artist. Dr. Lindemann had spent years working closely with Buffalo State College President Paul Bulger, and Charles E. Burchfield himself, to bring the Burchfield Art Center to fruition. 

Join us on September 1st when Grace Meibohm, Dr. Lindemann's niece, and Micheline Lepine, Dr. Lindemann's long time Executive Assistant and friend, discuss Dr. Lindemann's personal and professional development during the mid-20th century. In conjunction with this lecture, Archivist Heather Gring will also discuss how Dr. Lindemann's archives have been made accessible over the past two years at the Burchfield Penney Art Center.
