Join curator Robyn Asleson on a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Brilliant Exiles: American Women in Paris, 1900–1939. Hear the backstories of how the artwork came to be – and then how it came to be at the Portrait Gallery – and join a museum educator to dig deeper into stories the works tell.

If you join us late, please meet us in the exhibtion space on the 2nd floor of the museum.

The Portrait Gallery strives to provide programs that are accessible to all visitors. If you have questions about the accessibility of this program, or if you would like to request real-time captioning (CART), sign language interpretation, or any other accommodations, please contact [email protected].
