Patricia Waddell will explore the relationship of Lee Krasner and Jackson Pollock, their work, and their enduring legacy in the art world.

Lee Krasner and Jackson Pollock were ground-breaking American artists in the Abstract Expressionist movement. While their marriage was fraught with mental health issues, alcoholism, and infidelity, Krasner was a tireless champion of Pollock's artwork, providing the executive functioning Pollock lacked. Eventually, her artwork was also critically acclaimed, even while she managed the Pollock estate.

Patricia Waddell was an active docent at the Tucson Museum of Art for six years, where she coordinated community docent Art Talks at over 20 venues. She is a lifelong art lover and has visited major museums throughout the United States and Europe. She received a bachelor's and master's degree from Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD). Her career ranged from managing a nonprofit that served victims of rape and domestic violence to raising millions in grants through her communications and development work in support of Baltimore City's most vulnerable youth.
