Telfair presents Dr. Robert K. Wallace, who will discuss connections between the novel Moby-Dick and visual art with a concentration on the work of Frank Stella. Wallace is Regents Professor of English at Northern Kentucky University, a noted scholar of Herman Melville and author of the book Frank Stella’s Moby-Dick: Words and Shapes. Wallace conducted extensive interviews with Stella, chronicling the artist’s 12-year project exploring Moby-Dick, including works featured in the Summon the Sea! exhibition.
