For this enriching program, LRMA’s knowledgeable docents research a new or seldom-seen artwork from the museum’s permanent collection and then present their findings to the public on first Fridays from February through May and September through November. Each piece remains on view until the next is unveiled.
This month, in recognition of Women’s History Month, Docent Nancy Krauss will discuss a series of monoprints titled Veiled: Third Millennium Suite by the artist Susan Roth.
This program is supported in loving memory of Dr. Marcia Makris.
