Bring a friend to the museum for an epic lunch-time talk.

Looking for some artistic and intellectual nourishment during your lunch break? Join us on Wednesdays for short gallery talks to explore highlights from special exhibitions and NMWA s collection with museum staff.

This week, NMWA Curatorial Assistant Stephanie Midon discusses several works in the special exhibition Magnetic Fields: Expanding American Abstraction, 1960s to Today.

Magnetic Fields places abstract works by multiple generations of black women artists in context with one another and within the larger history of abstract art for the first time, revealing the artists role as unrecognized leaders in abstraction.
