Dialogues with Artists: One on One at the Mary R. Schiff Library

The voice of the practicing artist has been a key element of the series. At each event, participants have an opportunity to see up close works by each of two participating artists, hear artists address the question: “Why do you make art and how does this determine your connection to your audience?” followed by informal discussion with the audience.
