Conversations with Artists in the Galleries

How can masterpieces from the National Gallery of Art collection inspire contemporary artistic practice? Join us for conversations with practicing artists and museum educators in the galleries to explore how historical objects can spark the imagination of artists working today. Each participating artist will select one artist or work of art to discuss.

Please email us for more information.

This program is free and open to the public, but advance registration is required due to limited space. Each program is offered twice. Please choose one date per program. Registration opens at noon on the Tuesday prior to the start of a new topic. If the link does not appear, refresh your Internet browser.
