Drawn from the Museum's collection, The Long Run features works made by artists in their mid to late careers. How does an artist or artwork stand the test of time? We will invite participants to consider their prejudices and preferences and debate what makes art important enough to be remembered. We will also discuss the various ways the artists in this show survived and thrived as artists.

This session is led by Kerry Downey.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with collections and special exhibitions. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
