Gallery Talk

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street
Cambridge MA

Join curatorial assistants Casey Monahan and Heather Linton on a walk through the galleries to discover creatures real and imagined.

Our galleries are full of stories—this series of drop-in talks gives visitors a chance to hear the best ones! The talks highlight new works on view, take a fresh look at old favorites, investigate artists’ materials and techniques, and reveal the latest discoveries by curators, conservators, fellows, visiting artists, technologists, and other contributors.

Offered by:
Casey Kane Monahan, Cunningham Curatorial Assistant for the Collection, Division of European and American Art
Heather Linton, Curatorial Assistant for Special Exhibitions and Publications, Division of European and American Art

Free with museum admission. Gallery talks are limited to 15 people and tickets are required. Ten minutes before each talk, tickets will become available at the admissions desk.

Please meet in the Calderwood Courtyard, in front of the digital screens between the shop and the admissions desk. Museum staff will be on hand to collect tickets.
