Artist Talk: Jennifer Rabin

April 16, 2020 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Jennifer Rabin is a writer, visual artist, arts writer, and arts activist. Her work has appeared in The Kenyon Review, The Sun, The Rumpus, Harvard Review, Hyperallergic, and Willamette Week, where she served as the visual arts writer. She approaches art making as a devotional practice and is interested in the ways it offers us portals into other people’s experiences. She recently completed a memoir, All the Reverence in Our Hearts, about the power of art to shepherd us through difficult times.

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.

ASL/English Interpreters and automated real time captioning will be provided for this event.
