This ongoing series of Thursday-night events looks deeply at what makes museums tick and what they offer the culture at large.
Internationally renowned artist Duane Michals attended art classes at the museum as a child and continued to find inspiration here as a college student at nearby Carnegie Tech. The Museum of Art now owns more than 350 of his photographs. Michals, with Lynn Zelevansky as his foil, discusses with humor and frankness his longstanding relationship with CMA and the dynamic interplay between artists and museums.
