Saturday, April 22, 2017, 6 pm
Free and open to the public

Art in the 21st Century (Art: 21) is a PBS series that presents artists working in the United States today while “taking viewers behind the scenes — and beyond the museum or gallery experience — into artists’ studios, homes, and communities to provide an intimate view of their lives, work, creative processes, and sources of inspiration.”

Bring a dish to share and come join us for a medley of food and art while we learn more about the mesmerizing work of Kerry James Marshall, Vija Celmins, and William Kentridge.
