May 17, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm

On the third Tuesday of each month, Museum staff lead visitors on a thirty to forty-five minutes exploration of one work of art in the galleries. Through a series of close-looking techniques and questioning, this free experience helps build the visitor’s interpretive skills across the comprehensive-range of art periods and canons represented by the BMA’s collections. Stay for lunch at Oscar’s and they will throw in a free dessert!

This month, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, Wassan Al-Khudhairi, will explore the first work of art for Lobby Projects, a new BMA initiative that invites contemporary artists to create site-specific commissions. The debut artist is Montgomery native, Bethany Collins. Collins’ project, titled The Problem We All Live Withfeatures a mixed-media installation using archives ofThe Birmingham News to examine the intersection of race, language, and violence.
