The Sixty-Fourth A. W. Mellon Lectures in the Fine Arts
The A. W. Mellon Lectures in the Fine Arts were established in 1949 to bring to the people of the United States the results of the best contemporary thought and scholarship bearing upon the subject of the fine arts.
Because of the East Building renovation, the Sixty-Fourth A. W. Mellon Lectures in the Fine Arts will be presented in the West Building Lecture Hall, which has a capacity of 159 people. Seating will be offered on a first-come, first-seated basis. To accommodate the considerable public interest, the lectures will be available for the first time as a live stream on the Gallery website and within the Gallery at locations to be announced. Information will be available at www.nga.gov/casva.
Additionally, on the Wednesday following each lecture, a screening of the lecture will be shown in the West Building Lecture Hall at 12:00 p.m.
In anticipation of high attendance, the six lectures in this series will be video recorded. A screening of the recording will be shown the week after each lecture in the West Building Lecture Hall at 12:00 p.m.
