Lunch and Learn: Kyla Dierking and Hannah Lehman
June 7, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join recent University of Puget Sound art history graduates Kyla Dierking and Hannah Lehman to learn more about artist and entrepreneur Abby Williams Hill. As students in Professor Linda Williams’ Art History 380 course in Fall of 2016, Dierking and Lehman completed extensive research on Abby Hill that helped to establish the themes addressed in Promoting the West: Abby Williams Hill and the Railroads. These young scholars will share insights about Hill’s training and early career. Find out how these experiences influenced her artistic style during her commission from the Great Northern Railroad.
