NMWA Book Club: Old in Art School

Join us for a deep dive into Nell Painter’s book Old in Art School: A Memoir of Starting Over (2018) to explore the ambition and inspiration that drove a lauded scholar to start over and pursue her creative goals. Through this memoir and the NMWA Book Club, we will bring together the community to consider the timelessness of starting over and its relevance today.
