Join us for a special opportunity to hear the artist Whitfield Lovell in conversation with Curator of American Paintings, Sculpture and Drawings, Julie Aronson, to celebrate the opening of the much-anticipated exhibition, Whitfield Lovell: Passages. Discover from the artist how his work urges viewers to contemplate the ordinary lives and extraordinary journeys of the African American experience, while raising universal questions about identity, memory, and America’s collective heritage.
