Gallery Conversation in partnership with By Any Means: Revolutionizing Art History

Heinz Galleries

Free Event


CMOA partners with contemporary art series By Any Means for three thought-provoking in-gallery conversations.

Featured participants on October 7:
Augustus Brown, Jr., Ph.D., art historian and art educator
Mary Carey, arts, culture, and information facilitator at Braddock Carnegie Library
John Betsill, Carnegie Museum of Art security guard
Rodney H. Smith Sr., Carnegie Museum of Art security guard

By Any Means (BAM) engages with artists, curators, writers, and cultural consumers to broaden the scope and understanding of contemporary art influenced by Black culture. Each conversation invites a mix of artists, writers, activists, museum staff, and you to share reflections on the exhibition. Additional support for BAM is provided by Annette Berger and Family and the August Wilson Legacy Fund.
