Symposium: "Smithsonian American Art Museum: Artists Respond"
On March 15, SAAM is presenting a day of discussions and lectures on topics related to the exhibition. A group of distinguished scholars, including CSRC director Chon A. Noriega, will provide insights into how artists of the Vietnam War era sought to engage, and six artists whose work is in the exhibition will address their varied experiences of the war period. The program is free and open to the public.
