Online Event: Thirsty Thursday with Fenwick & West, October 29

Please join us on October 29 at 6:00 pm for an art conversation with Fenwick & West's Michelle Hamilt and Ed Rymsha, curators of "Be Heard. Speak Up.," on view in NIAD Windows from October 23 through November 13, 2020.  Hamilt and Rymsha will be joined by NIAD artist Shana Harper whose work is included in the exhibition.

For more than five years, Bay Area based law firm Fenwick & West has partnered with NIAD to create a group exhibition of Art Center works in their five offices across the country. Tied into National Disability Employment Awareness Month, these shows traditionally took place in October. Always the exhibitions were a lively and lyrical selection of art -- chosen by the law firm -- with the sales directly supporting NIAD artists. Although the pandemic has changed many things in our lives, this now-annual exhibition is not one of them. This year's version is another sweeping smorgasboard of drawings, paintings and crafts. But, its available online with highlights available in NIAD Windows.

Hosted by NIAD's Director of Exhibitions Tim Buckwalter, Thirsty Thursday is our new event series bringing together artists and curators with interested people like you. Our guest speakers will drop some knowledge on how they selected the show and ideas about the art work in the show and their own work. All of us will learn a lot.
