Artists, Travelers, and Immigrants

  • 2:00 PM–3:00 PM

Online via Zoom

Join Brady Plunger, associate curator of education, for a discussion about artists who were also immigrants (like Hans Hofman and Lil Picard). We’ll explore how the movement of people and ideas into, out of, and around the US created new possibilities for artists during the first half of the twentieth century.

Join us on Zoom 

Saturdays at the Stanley brings the museum’s collection to you in a casual, fun, and interactive atmosphere. Each event has a theme – game day, frenemies, cats – that looks at our artwork from a different perspective. Curators lead visitors through a selection of works, share stories about the artists and subject matter, and open the discussion up to the audience. We invite visitors of all ages to participate in these conversations and get (re)acquainted with our collection as we look forward to the opening of our new building!

Cost: Free and open to all
