Social Activism and Burnt Stumps
Two Brothers’ Living Art

The Runquist brothers, Arthur and Albert, dedicated their artwork to a direct portrayal of their world. Whether working in Portland’s shipyards or drawing and painting from their borrowed cottage on Neahkahnie mountain, they observed and chronicled the plight of the exploited worker and the ravages of nature and man on the landscape. Spanning five decades, their drawings and paintings illustrate a transitional time in American history with beauty and honesty.

Retired Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Curator of Northwest Art from the Portland Art Museum, Bonnie laing-Malcolmson, will present this talk and a second one on June 9, Social Realism and Government Funding: Works Projects Administration (WPA)Art in and beyond Oregon.

Check out the accompanying lecture on June 9 by curator Bonnie Laing-Malcolmson here.
