Join Boren Banner artist Molly Jae Vaughan for a performance and public lecture exploring the work of Francois Boucher (1703 – 70). Boucher’s jubilant, fluid and coloristic style was criticized later in his life as frivolous, but his opulent and decorative drawings from mythology draft the perfect canvas for Vaughan. Her ongoing series After Boucher inserts transgender people into this lavish Rococo world.
