The Life of Grandma Moses, presented by Deana Mallory,
In the 1950s, she was a household name, and she continues to
have admirers in the art world and in the general population throughout the
world. Her fame is the result of a number of factors, including good timing,
good marketing, and good painting. In this illustrated talk, you will learn
about Moses’ early life, her discovery as an artist at the age of 78, and the
reasons behind her enduring popularity. You will also discover how Bennington
Museum came to be so closely associated with Grandma Moses.

anthropology from the State University of New York at Binghamton and a Master’s
