Anne Bremer, _Sentinels_, 1920

Anne McGuire is an artist whose work plays with conventions of perception.  In her talk on Anne Bremer‘s Sentinels (1920), Anne imagines prairie girl Laura Ingalls Wilder‘s life as compared to the life of the cosmopolitan painter and poet Anne Bremer, born as they were just one year apart. Thank you Anne!

Remember the end of Manhattan, when Woody Allen asks himself what makes life worth living? Last January, during SFMOMA’s three day 75th anniversary celebration, 75 people from the Bay Area creative community gave extremely short talks—7.5 minutes or less!—on a single collection work of their choosing. Someone called it ‘manic splendor’—and it was. You can follow the 75 Reasons to Live talks as we post them by checking in here.

    I just bought a tea set at a flea market handpainted and signed by Ann Bremer. Do you know what it worth? Text at 417-312-0171
