Here’s an announcement from faculty member Amy Wilson about a live online artist’s Q&A she’ll be doing this Thursday afternoon:

 * * *

Hello! I hope you’re holding up under these crazy circumstances reasonably well. 

I wanted to let you know about an online Q&A I’m doing with Brooklyn Museum curator Carmen Hermo on Thursday, 5/21, from 3-4pm. It says on the link below that you have to be a member but I’m told that’s not true and it’s open to all; you’ll get a zoom invite if you register. Or if you can’t make it and still want to check it out, there will be a Vimeo video posted after the fact, at some point.  

To get the Zoom info, go here:

Hope you can make it!

– Amy
