Urgent Museum Notice

Art Chat @ Five

An open spread of a pop-up book featuring one of Walker's signature black-and-white cut-paper silhouettes which shows a female slave holding a bucket to, presumably, her master, who sits on, presumably, a big pile of cotton while a young boy slave is on the other side holding a bag of cotton. In the distance another female slave picks cotton in front of a heap. Text from the narrative is positioned on both the right and left pages in the upper corners.
Join weekly 45-minute online Art Chats with NMWA educators.

Recent studies indicate that work-life balance is off-kilter for many and recommend scheduling opportunities for leisure and learning. Here’s your chance!

We invite you to jumpstart your weekend with art: every Friday at 5 p.m. (EDT), join NMWA educators for informal 45-minute art chats about selected artworks from NMWA’s collection. Each week a new sampling of artworks will be considered. You can even enjoy your favorite happy hour drink or snack during the sessions.

Registration is limited to 45 participants each week.

It’s simple to participate:

  1. Check out this week’s artworks.
  2. Complete the registration request form for Friday’s video call.
  3. The week of the program, keep an eye out for an email that provides further information. The first 45 registrants will receive a meeting link; others will receive notification that the program is full.
  4. If you received the meeting link, hop online and follow the instructions to join the conversation Friday at 5 p.m. (EDT)
