For members only!
Join us for the lecture series "Masterworks of 21st Century Art in Context" as we examine four of the most important works of art created in the contemporary era. We will look closely at each work of art, place it within a broad context of major contemporary art movements, and describe the way it relates to artwork at The Contemporary Austin. Wine and cheese will be served. Space is limited. Registration is required.
