CANCELED | Express Talk: PHOTOGRAPHY + FINE ART—Material Meanings: Selections from the Constance R. Caplan Collection



Admission actions

  • Free with museum admission

In the interest of the health and safety of our visitors, guest speakers, performers, and staff, we are canceling all on-site programs through May 31. We hope to reschedule this program and will let all current registrants know of the new date as soon as it’s set. 

Please review other precautionary measures the museum is taking due to COVID-19.

Join curator Caitlin Haskell for a 30-minute talk about a selection of modern art and photography from the Caplan Collection.

Colorful and intricate, this work by Alighiero Boetti contains many shapes and forms—human figures, animals, plants, which all come together to form the densely packed composition.
