Event Description

About the Program

Director Susan Fisher Sterling will reveal never-before-seen historical photographs of NMWA’s 1908 landmark building along with architectural renderings of planned new spaces. The renovated building will feature a purpose-designed education studio for hands-on activities and revitalized exhibition galleries, developed to accommodate all types of art, from paintings by Old Mistresses to immersive contemporary video installations.
NMWA’s Directors of Education and Public Programs will discuss the exciting slate of workshops, talks and concerts planned for the Fall 2021/Winter 2022 season, with most programs presented online and available to participants around the world. Staff from the museum’s curatorial department will discuss a major offsite exhibition planned for early 2022. Organized by NMWA and presented in the galleries of a partner museum in Washington, D.C., the project highlights the limitless vision, in content and technique, of women and non-binary artists in printmaking.

Closing week events:

NMWA will host a variety of celebratory events and programs from Sunday, August 1 to Sunday, August 8 before the building closes for a major renovation. Visitors can enjoy free admission, extended hours and a special sneak peek into the renovation project and plans for the museum’s future.
