Event: Tuesday, December 14 from 12pm to 12:45pm
On Tuesday, December 14 from 12–12:45 pm, the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) leads a program titled Remembering Those Lost. DC-area artist and advocate Suzanne Brennan Firstenberg joins Associate Curator Virginia Treanor, PhD and Senior Educator Adrienne L Gayoso to discuss her recent exhibition In America: Remember. From September to October 2021, this installation blanketed the National Mall with over 700,000 white flags, honoring each person in the USA who died due to COVID-19. In addition to visualizing the magnitude of our national loss, the work now includes thousands of flags personalized by grieving family and friends. The program is free; registration is required.
This event is part of NMWA xChange, a monthly virtual talk show, featuring topical interviews with artists, educators and curators. NMWA is the only major museum in the world solely dedicated to championing women through the arts. While its building is closed for a major renovation, NMWA continues its mission-based work and engages supporters and friends through a full slate of online programs and events, off-site and virtual exhibitions and digital content.
