SEP 12 Gallery Talk: Heavy Metal

Feeling stuck at work? Join this gallery talk at lunch!

Express lunchtime talks—30 minutes or fewer—are offered most Wednesdays. Facilitated by museum staff members, these conversation-driven thematic talks highlight three to six works on view. 

This week, NMWA NMWA Director of Education and Digital Engagement Deborah Gaston discusses a sampling of works in Heavy Metal—Women to Watch 2018


The fifth installment of NMWA’s Women to Watch exhibition series showcases contemporary artists working in metal, including sculpture, jewelry, and conceptual forms. Heavy Metal engages with the fluidity between “fine” art, design, and craft, whose traditional definitions are rooted in gender discrimination.
