Art in Conversation

Growing LGBTQ+ Collections

June 7, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Art in Conversation is a bi-monthly series at the BMA where curators, museum professionals, and other special guests lead conversations on art and culture. In the latest rotation in our American Gallery, we feature works highlighting LGBTQ+ life given to the BMA’s collection by donor Patrick Cather. Join Dr. Graham C. Boettcher, The R. Hugh Daniel Director & CEO of the Birmingham Museum of Art; Dr. Jonathan Frederick Walz, Director of Curatorial Affairs and Curator of American Art, The Columbus Museum; and artist Carolyn Sherer for a conversation about Cather’s gifts to the BMA and the broader importance of growing LGBTQ+ representation and art collections in museums, particularly in the South.
