Due to the federal government shutdown, the Smithsonian American Art Museum and Renwick Gallery are closed; programs and events at the museum are also canceled.
Join us for a three-part program that explores the artists in Crosscurrents. Academic, writer, and cultural diplomat Annie Cohen-Solal discusses European and American modernism, the work of Niki de Saint Phalle, and the interactions among art, literature, and society. Chief curator Virginia Mecklenburg sits down with Sam Rose and Julie Walters to discuss their collection and how European and American modernists influenced each other's work. The evening concludes with art historian, food critic, and best-selling author, Gijs van Hensbergen discussing Pablo Picasso and the nine Picasso paintings in the exhibition.
