Registration is required.

Join Weiwen Balter, Manager of School Communities at the Walters, and Jamie Grace Alexander, Baltimore artist and activist, as they discuss nuance in complex histories around feminism and activism and what abolition means in the art world, in conversation with artworks from the Walters collection.


Queering the Collection is an in-gallery program series that invites queer-identifying perspectives to participate in a conversation that connects art-historical and artistic knowledge about works in our collection. Speakers discuss works of art in our galleries followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
