Virtual Lecture Series
In response to the continued limits on large indoor gatherings, the Museum brings its gallery talks online with the addition of the CAM Virtual Lecture Series. These regular online events—lectures, discussions, presentations, gallery tours, artists talks and more—offer visitors near and far the chance to engage deeply with the Museum’s extensive collection from the safety home. Cost is free for CAM members or $10 for the general public. Find a list of all upcoming events here.
