Join author William Middleton for a brilliant portrait of Dominique and John de Menil.
In an intimate talk, he will share the never-before-told story of two of the most important philanthropists of the twentieth century, whose prescient vision for art, architecture, and human rights, put them in a league of their own.
Maverick collectors, patrons, and civil rights activists, the de Menils arrived in the United States from France during World War II and changed the cultural face of New York and Houston.
William Middleton had unprecedented access to the private family archives for his book, the first and definitive biography of this visionary couple.
Conversation led by author and journalist Kate Betts.
Followed by a book signing
