The David and Anne McCosh Memorial Visiting Lecturer Series on Northwest Art: Thoughts on a Museum of Wonder

University of Oregon alumna Linda Tesner has spent her thirty-eight-year curatorial career in institutions as varied as Maryhill Museum of Art, the Portland Art Museum, and the Ronna and Eric Hoffman Gallery of Contemporary Art at Lewis & Clark College. From this vantage point, Tesner has developed thoughts on the elements she believes creates delight in a visual art experience. Her illustrated comments draw on the richness of private collections found in Oregon as she proposes an alternative to traditional art museums.
