When Woman-Ochre was cut from her frame and stolen from the UAMA in 1985, the community suffered psychological trauma not unlike the physical trauma sustained by the painting.

The loss was felt well beyond the Museum’s walls and outside the city limits of Tucson, causing arts patrons and cultural institutions throughout the world to grieve with us.

Conversely, the miraculous 2017 recovery of Woman-Ochre provided occasion for collective healing, and the meticulous repair work undertaken by the J. Paul Getty Museum served as a symbol of that process.

Inspired by Woman-Ochre‘s journey and those wide-reaching effects, renowned grief expert Mary-Frances O’Connor and PhD candidate in clinical psychology Da’Mere Wilson are thrilled to present this special in-person talk at the UAMA. O’Connor, a neuroscientist and psychologist, is author of “The Grieving Brain: The Surprising Science of How We Learn from Love and Loss.” Wilson studies racial trauma and grief, and is a psychotherapist who specializes in developing and providing evidence-based interventions.

This talk is part of a broader UAMA series on Art + Wellness. Look for more programming on this theme in Spring 2023!

All talks in the Woman-Ochre Speaker Series are generously supported by Tim Hagyard with Long Realty, specializing in historic and unusual properties.
