Spanning the Continent: The Diker Collection of American Indian Art

Lecture

Gaylord Torrence, Fred and Virginia Merrill Senior Curator of American Indian Art, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art

Curator Gaylord Torrence will discuss the aesthetic traditions and formal, technical, and thematic concerns that guided, challenged, and inspired these artists.

Reservations are required. Registration for this program opens July 1. Call 817.989.5030 or email visitors@cartermuseum.org to register.
