Surrealism Comes To Larkspur Library

Get a preview tonight of the Legion of Honor's Man Ray-Lee Miller art exhibit.

Here are some of the highlights happening around the Larkspur and Corte Madera Twin Cities area Sept. 27-28:

Museum docent, Maureen O’Brien, will give a presentation at Larkspur Library on Thursday at 7 p.m. about the Man Ray—Lee Miller art exhibit on display at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco through October 4.

“Man Ray—Lee Miller: Partners in Surrealism” consists of approximately 115 photographs, paintings, drawings and manuscripts that explore the creative interaction between Man Ray and Lee Miller, two giants of European Surrealism. This is the first exhibition to focus exclusively on the pair’s artistic relationship. It also includes selected works by artists in Ray and Miller’s circle in Paris, including paintings by Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst, Roland Penrose, Dora Maar, and a small sculpture by Alexander Calder.
