All museums have the opportunity to be hubs for connections between people, ideas, cultures, and even for someone to connect more fully with themselves, or who they aspire to be. What a privilege!

—Ann E. Musser, Associate Director for Academic Programs & Public Education (2003–14)


Smith Alumnae join in conversation about the work of connecting people with art in deeply meaningful ways, both within art museums and through the activist work of other community-based organizations. They will reflect on their own motivations and challenges in this work, while also sharing personal perspectives on integrating art in our lives and communities today.

Free and open to the public. Advance registration required.
