Clarice Smith Distinguished Lectures in American Art 

The Smithsonian American Art Museum established the Clarice Smith Distinguished Lectures in American Art in 2004 to present new insights in American art from the perspectives of outstanding artists, critics, and scholars. This annual series takes place each fall, and is made possible by the generosity of Clarice Smith.

The 2020 series will take place online. Lectures begin at 6:30 p.m. Registration is required.
