In her lecture, McDaniel will explore a survey of the artwork produced by Hilaire-Germain-Edgar Degas. She will address each of the themes and subjects covering his entire career, from portraiture and ballet dancers to his New Orleans paintings and café scenes.

McDaniel received her Master of Arts degree from Louisiana State University and the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, Greece. She is the coordinator of the Visual Arts Academic Studies Abroad Program at McNeese.

SAGE is open to the public and cost is $65 for the series.

This presentation coincides with the opening of the international retrospective exhibition, “Degas: A New Vision,” at the Houston Museum of Fine Arts.

The SAGE series will offer a one-day bus trip Wednesday, Nov. 2, for a guided tour of Degas’ works as well as another museum exhibit, “Emperor’s Treasures: Chinese Art from the National Palace Museum, Taipei.” In addition, the group will view another exhibit, “Grand Designs: Neoclassical Taste in the 18th Century,” at the Rienzi Mansion.
