Join SAAM’s research fellows for this lunchtime series of gallery talks as they share new discoveries about artworks on view. Learn the stories behind these objects and how each one tells us about an ever-changing culture in the United States. Molly Eckel, the Joe and Wanda Corn Predoctoral Fellow, discusses William H. Johnson's Underground Railroad, on view in SAAM’s Fighters for Freedom: William H. Johnson Picturing Justice exhibition.
