This summer, join NMWA staff members for short gallery discussions that explore the highlights of our diverse summer exhibitions of work by Faith Ringgold, Audrey Niffenegger, and Bice Lazzari. 

This week, Associate Curator Virginia Treanor discusses selections from Awake in the Dream World: The Art of Audrey Niffenegger. The gallery talk will cover the mid-career retrospective of Niffenegger, featuring her book art, works on paper, and paintings.

Discover a fantastic, strange, and mysterious world created by the artist and bestselling author of The Time Traveler’s Wife and Her Fearful Symmetry. The talk and exhibition will reflect Niffenegger’s captivating narrative talent.


The mid-career retrospective of Audrey Niffenegger showcases the artist’s captivating exploration of life, morality, and magic. Her narratives give insight into universal experiences such as the need for love, the inevitability of death, and the peculiar sensation of the passage of time.
