Levy Lecture Series

Walter Burt Adams: An Evanston Original


Leading this Levy Lecture is Eden Juron Pearlman, who has been the director of the Evanston History Center (EHC) since May 2005. Before becoming director of EHC, she was its curator of collection, a position she held since December 1996. For more than 25 years she has worked at galleries and museums including the Block Museum of Art at Northwestern University and the Mitchell Museum of the American Indian.

A graduate of the University of Illinois, her lecture will be on the life and work of local Evanston painter Walter Burt Adams. A number of Adam’s paintings were gifted to the Levy Senior Center, where they are on display in the Library & the Linden Room.

The Levy Senior Center Foundation is proud to sponsor the Levy Lecture Series, an educational program for residents 55+ years who are passionate about learning. Join us this spring as we explore Illinois! Reservations are required. You can register online here, call (847) 448-8250 or stop by the front desk. All lectures are free and are held in the Linden Room.
