Talking point

.

From the late 18th century through the 1940s, salons in private homes granted women a singular means of education. The very best of them brought musicians, scholars, government officials, writers, and artists together and were a force in shaping opinion and taste. Jewish women, who could often cross social borders closed to their husbands and brothers, were disproportionately among the most influential salonnières. The Power of Conversation: Jewish Women and Their Salons, at the McMullen Museum of Art, August 22–December 4, displays more than 150 photographs, sculptures, manuscripts, musical scores, films, and other objects. For information, call (617) 552-8587, or visit www.bc.edu/artmuseum.
