Virginia and Ira Jackson Lecture
Virginia and Ira Jackson created an endowment in 1998 to fund an annual lecture at the Museum on the collecting and connoisseurship of prints and drawings. Free and open to the public, the Virginia and Ira Jackson Lecture is the only program of its type in the United States.
This lecture receives generous funding from the Virginia and Ira Jackson Endowment Fund at the MFAH.
