Michael Lazarus received his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and his MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. He has shown nationally and internationally including exhibitions at MOMA PS1, New York; Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco; Las Vegas Museum of Art; and Oregon State University. He was chosen for the Portland Biennial in 2016 and his work is included in the collection of the Portland Art Museum. His work lies somewhere between abstraction, portraiture, landscape, and sign.

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.
