Panel Discussion: DMV Artists and their Museum Community

What role do local, contemporary artists play in museums? Join us at the George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum for a panel discussion that brings together voices from different sectors of the visual arts community. Panelists will explore how artists can engage with their local museums, and how museums can strengthen those relationships.

The panel will be moderated by Amanda Jirón-Murphy, gallery director at Hamiltonian Artists. Panelists include: Kiyomi Iwata, an artist featured in The Box Project: Uncommon Threads; Claudia Lamy, graduate student at the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design; Jordan Martin, Washington Project for the Arts program assistant and founding editor of DIRT; Georgie Payne, Transformer exhibitions and programs manager, and founding editor of DIRT; and Brown Girls Museum Blog co-founder Ravon Ruffin.

Join us for a light reception at 5:30 p.m. The panel will begin at 6 p.m., and guests will have a guided visit of The Box Project exhibition following the discussion. Free, but reservations are required. Register online or call 202-994-7394.
