End your week with art! Each Friday at noon, join a curator, educator, scholar, or artist in the galleries.

This week, join artist Mark Wethli for a final look at his colorful installation Transom, a site-specific painted installation created for the 2003 PMA Biennial. Mark will discuss how the painting was designed to harmonize with the space while also highlighting the distinctive "floating" wall on which it's painted; as well as how it references his other works in the PMA collection.
