Dr. Sarah Lippert
The Friends of Modern Art (FOMA) will purchase new technology for the FIA Theater that will allow FIA lectures to be uploaded to the museum’s website in memory of Dr. Sarah Lippert, Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Michigan-Flint, and committed member of the FOMA Board. Dr. Lippert was dedicated to her students, to art history, and to bringing scholarly research to the forefront. She was an accomplished scholar having published numerous journal and anthology articles and was the founding Director of the Society for Paragone Studies, a program she chose to bring to the Flint Institute of Arts, in collaboration. Dr. Lippert guest curated two exhibitions on works in the FIA’s permanent collection in the Graphics Gallery: Fantasy, Fiction, and Fact in Popular Illustration, and Rhythms and Experiences: Everyday Life in 19th-Century Japanese Prints. She also researched and published a book for the Fantasy, Fiction, and Fact in Popular Illustration exhibition.
