Leslie-Lohman Speakers Series
We are proud to announce the official launch of the Leslie-Lohman Speakers Series. This newly established ongoing series of lectures will offer a minimum of one lecture per quarter with a focus on creating an environment and opportunity for studio based artists to interact with a public audience of diverse backgrounds, encouraging a dialogue between artist and audience. Lectures are free, and open to the public.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. Be sure to check our website (LeslieLohman.org) for updates and additions to our tours and lectures.
Schedule and dates are subject to change. Please check back often for updated information.
