Public Programs

Public programs include individual artist talks, panels, short film screenings, and exhibition walkthroughs. Programs are organized to coincide with museum-curated exhibitions on view at Art + Practice.


Come to Art + Practice for an enlightening evening with Dr. Bridget Cooks of University of California at Irvine and Dr. Kellie Jones of Columbia University as they discuss the impact and legacy of artist and arts advocate Ruth Waddy. Waddy was the first artist Eileen Harris Norton purchased artwork from; and some of those initial artworks are displayed in A+P’s current exhibition Collective Constellation: Selections from The Eileen Harris Norton Collection.
