Noontime Talk: "Sculpture at the PMA"

Karen Lemmey, Curator of Sculpture at the Smithsonian American Art Museum

The PMA is thrilled to welcome Karen Lemmey, Curator of Sculpture at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, to be our visiting scholar as part of the Barnet Scholar’s Weekend. Join Lemmey for a noontime talk about sculpture at the PMA.

The weekend focuses on the development of direct carving—a modernist approach to sculpture pioneered by artists such as Robert Laurent and William Zorach. Lemmey’s visit marks the fourth installment of the Barnet Scholar’s weekend, which is dedicated to the study, interpretation, and exploration of key topics in American modernism.

This program is generously supported by the Will Barnet Foundation.
