ABOUT THE EVENT
Museum Masters | Expanding American Art
This three-part series investigates the meaning of “American” art and expands it towards an inclusive definition. Each session focuses on Latinx, Asian American, and African American artists from the NBMAA collection. We will discuss contemporary artists such as Isamu Noguchi, Ana Mendieta, and Titus Kaphar, as we consider how one’s life experiences interface with their artistic practices.

Asian and Asian American Artists
Thursday, June 9, 6-7 p.m.
African American Artists
Thursday, June 30, 6-7 pm.
