October 18, 2018 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Subashini Ganesan is an artist, arts administrator, and the creative laureate of Portland. Her art explores contemporary expressions of South Indian classical dance. As the founder and executive director of New Expressive Works (N.E.W.), she stewards a vibrant performing-arts venue in Portland that celebrates and supports multicultural independent performing artists to teach, be in residence, and create bold new works.

Join artists from a range of disciplines in the galleries for lively conversations about works of art on view at the Museum and how they relate to their own practices. The talks are followed by complimentary social hour in the museum cafe.

Program begins at 6 p.m. $5 members, $20 non-members, $17 seniors. Space is limited. Tickets available online or on site.
