Friday Morning Lecture & Tour Series
Using Maya Angelou's poem, Still I Rise, as a starting point, Dr. Amy Galpin, Associate Curator, Art of the Americas, will examine modern and contemporary portraiture created by American artists, with an emphasis on work created in the last twenty years. Learn more about portraits from the colonial period to present on view in Figures, the section of Behold, America! at The San Diego Museum of Art. The collaborative exhibition, opening at three Museums on November 10 is divided between Figures, Frontiers at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, and Forms at the Timken Museum of Art.
The Friday Morning Lecture & Tour Series, happening the third Friday of each month, focuses on works on view in the Museum. All lectures are followed by docent-led tours.
