Art & Conversation

November 17, 2016 @ 9:15 am – 11:15 am

Join us the third Thursday of every month for coffee and conversation followed by a lecture or film screening. This month, Maribeth Graybill, Ph. D., The Arlene and Harold Schnitzer Curator of Asian Art, will take a deeper dive into the exhibition Cranes, Dragons, and Teddy Bears: Japanese Children’s Kimono from the Paly Collection. After the talk, take a closer look at the exhibition in-person and explore other parts of the Museum free of charge.

Coffee at 9:15 a.m.; lecture at 10:15am. This series is free for adults 62 and over and is made possible through the Marguerite and Harry Kendall Education Fund. Additional support comes from Rick and Erika Miller.
