A series of illustrated lectures via Zoom will take attendees on journey to sites throughout the Historic Artists' Homes and Studios network. It celebrates the 20th anniversary of HAHS, which launched in 2000, and the publication of the new HAHS guidebook, which is on sale now.
The free video lectures will be held on Zoom on Sundays at 5 p.m. in July and August. Please register here. One registration gives you access to the full series!
These lecture are generously supported by Dorothy Lichtenstein, Pollock-Krasner House members, the Herman Goldman Foundation, and the John H. Marburger III Memorial Fund of Stony Brook University.
