Conversations with Curators


This beloved members-only lecture series features monthly conversations with the creative forces behind SAM’s collections and exhibitions. Each season, SAM curators craft thoughtful and in-depth discussions around themes that encompass a wide range of approaches to examining art from SAM’s collection. Members are invited to attend the entire series or to attend individual lectures.

Ticket sales directly support this series and help SAM continue to provide engaging member-exclusive lectures and programs.
