About The Event

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

This month, CMA curator of photography Barbara Tannenbaum sheds light on the lives of the British elite and Indian maharajas depicted by Raja Deen Dayal in the album on view in the Mark Schwartz and Bettina Katz Photography Galleries.

This program is made possible with support from Gail C. and Elliot L. Schlang.
