Saturday Pairings

A bronze sculpture of two hands touching rests on a plinth in front of a painting of a dancing couple

Join us for a close look at pairings of works from the collection on display in Calling on the Past.

Led by a Museum Educator, each Saturday afternoon gallery talk offers a guided exploration of two or more works that have been set in conversation with one another, speaking to wide-ranging themes like identity, love, reclamation, and loss.

FREE, drop-in.
