2pm Sunday
Frye Art Museum
lecture by Deputy Director Scott Lawrimore

Tucked away in the back corner of the Frye is a beautiful show about Northwest artist Helmi Junvonen. It (and many other things) will be discussed Sunday afternoon by Scott Lawrimore. 
Helmi Juvonen: Dispatches to You (R.S.V.P.)  is a love letter back to an exceptional artist devoted to her art and correspondence with friends and loves. It is also a response from a museum committed to finding fresh perspectives and contemporary relevance in its historical collection.
