Brown Bag Gallery Talks are an important part of our public programs and are held with each exhibition. The format is flexible: using their own vantage point, speakers approach a museum exhibition using their expertise as artists, art historians, and scholars or professionals in a wide range of disciplines. After the talk, visitors are encouraged to say and to continue conversations during a brown bag lunch.
