Virtual Presentation Series for Educators: Who’s Afraid of Contemporary Art?

Second Wednesday of the Month, 6:30 pm, October 2020–May 2021

In these free monthly presentations just for educators, we will explore contemporary artists from the Albright-Knox’s collection and public art projects for curriculum inspiration. Join School and Docent Programs Coordinator Lindsay Kranz for discussions on how contemporary artists are exploring what it means to be a citizen in the 21st century and how those themes might engage students in virtual and in-person learning.
