Thanks for coming out to the Lord Baltimore Hotel. The talk featured NY-based artist Rashid Johnson and Collectors Mera and Don Rubell, with Cara Ober.

If you missed the event on May 27, never fear: You can listen to a complete podcast of the artist talk here in this post, or at the BmoreArt Soundcloud page.
