At 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 4 the Ferndale Public Library will host “Seeing Red: The Power of Color in Art” presented by the Detroit Institute of Arts. Wendy Evans, a teacher of Art History at Wayne State University, College for Creative Studies and the DIA, will feature works throughout history from the DIA art collection to illustrate the impact of color upon art. Born in England and educated at Oxford, Evans was recently named Volunteer of the Year by the DIA’s Speakers Bureau. She presents other art talks in institutions throughout the area, including “Reawakening Renaissance Art,” and “Whistler and his Followers.” This event is free to the public and is the second arts lecture to be presented at the library.
