Virtual Lecture | “Chat and Chew” with Artist Trenton Doyle Hancock

Next up in the Ruth K. Shartle Lecture Series: Trenton Doyle Hancock in conversation with Alison de Lima Greene, curator of modern and contemporary art. The 2021 edition of the series explores the question “What is contemporary art?” with artists whose work is on view in the Nancy and Rich Kinder Building. Admission is free.

Hancock’s tapestry Color Flash for Chat and Chew, Paris Texas in Seventy-Two graces Le Jardinier, the Museum’s new restaurant. So he invites you to have snacks on hand at home during the conversation!
