As a public health precaution due to COVID-19, the Smithsonian American Art Museum and its Renwick Gallery are closed temporarily. Visit the Smithsonian's website for updates about a phased re-opening plan.
Each month, the Luce Foundation Center partners with neighboring Flashpoint Gallery to bring local artists to speak about their own work and the inspiration they take from SAAM's collection. We'll kick off our fall Luce Artist Talk Series on Sunday, September 25, with Nicole Salimbene, a multimedia artist whose work explores themes of mindfulness and conflict between one's internal self and the physical world. She will discuss how she uses form to encourage contemplation and provoke dialogue.
