Weekly Gallery Talks and Art Chats

Express lunchtime talks—30 minutes or less—are offered most Wednesdays. Facilitated by museum staff members, these conversation-driven thematic talks highlight three to six works on view. Due to health concerns related to COVID-19, weekly gallery talks are canceled until further notice.

Instead, join NMWA educators virtually for informal 45-minute art chats about selected artworks from NMWA’s collection and special exhibitions.
