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/mellonlectures.
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.
