American Art, 429 S. Main St., Elkhart

Lea Goldman will be featured as the Exhibiting Artist at the Midwest Museum of American Art’s Noon Time Talk series today.

Doors will be locked at 12:15 p.m. No admittance to the museum by the public will be allowed until the talk has concluded and the galleries emptied and sterilized

As a full-time painter and printmaker, Goldman will discuss her role as a storyteller. Her work is narrative in nature with close attention to abstract elements, according to information provided by the museum. Goldman’s interest in multi-cultural traditions, legends, and folklore evolved into personal mythology, constantly developing, and expressed in an array of images and materials.

This Noon Time Film is a part of an ongoing series of educational discussions and films held every Thursday at the Midwest Museum of American Art. For admission hours and pricing, visit
