Join us for a virtual program featuring the artist Sarah Cain in conversation with Beth Finch, the curator of hand in hand, Cain’s current exhibition in the William D. Adams Gallery. They will discuss how Cain realized this extraordinary painting installation, her inspirations for it, and the interplay between her studio practice and site-responsive projects. A Q&A will follow.
This will be a virtual program, using Zoom. Please register here to receive the link to join. A recording will be available on the museum’s YouTube channel at a later date.
The Art & series brings together visiting artists, scholars, museum staff, and community experts for conversations about exhibitions, collections, and projects at the Colby College Museum of Art and its Lunder Institute for American Art. A mix of in-person, virtual, and hybrid programs, this series is designed for those interested in learning more about art and engaging with the key issues of our time.
