This series creates a platform for the voices of artists, art scholars, critics, museum professionals, and historians.

Q&A will follow each discussion.
Art Voices will be held on selected 3rd Thursday’s of each month from 6–7PM. Each lecture is 45 minutes in duration with 10 minutes devoted to Q&A, followed by a light reception.
