Artist George Morton has received international media attention, including stories in The New York Times and USA Today, for his embrace of Old Master techniques and the redemptive power of art in his life. Born and raised in Kansas City, Morton returns home and to the Nelson-Atkins to copy a longtime favorite: Rembrandt van Rijn’s Young Man in a Black Beret. Experience his compelling story and don’t miss witnessing his process in gallery P17 from October 14-27.
