Join us to explore the life and work of Auguste Rodin, the eminent French sculptor who broke away from the traditions of the 19th century and heralded many 20th-century innovations. Discover his sources of inspiration and how his process influenced a new generation of artists. Programs include a conversation with curators, art making and a performance in East India Marine Hall by a string quartet from the New England Philharmonic.
