Tickets: $10 / Members: Free. Reservations: visit www.kreegermuseum.org, call 202-338-3552 or email visitorservices[at]kreegermuseum.org

The public is invited to The Kreeger Museum for a panel discussion featuring three renowned Washington, DC artists. Carol Brown Goldberg works with a foundry to cast her bronzes; Dalya Luttwak works alone in her studio, forging steel; Martha Jackson-Jarvis is currently making clay and glass tiles for a monumental commission. Although each artist approaches sculpture-making in a different manner as can be seen in their works installed at the Kreeger, the sculptors are unified by the task of surmounting the technical challenges associated with being a female sculptor.  Vivienne Lassman, Independent Curator,  Art Advisor, Gallerist and Art Consultant in the field of contemporary art, will moderate the discussion.

Presented in partnership with the 25th Anniversary Celebration of the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA), this event is a must-attend for anyone interested in art and art-making.  Don’t miss the opportunity to participate in this lively discourse between three celebrated artists amidst the beauty of the The Kreeger Museum.
