About The Event

Come to the CMA for a quick bite of art history. Every first Tuesday of each month, join curators, scholars, and other museum staff for 30-minute talks on objects currently on display in the museum galleries. 

Britany Salsbury, associate curator of prints and drawings, introduces visitors to the enigmatic and imaginative world of late 19th-century French artist Odilon Redon. Highlighting works on view in the exhibition Collecting Dreams: Odilon Redon, Salsbury discusses the artist’s paintings, drawings, and prints—that mined fantasy, literature, and the subconscious for inspiration—and their important place within the CMA’s history.

Free, tickets required.
