Elizabeth Colomba, artist

Join representational painter Elizabeth Colomba, who is of Caribbean and French heritage, in the galleries for a discussion about her artistic process. Colomba draws inspiration from Euro-American painters like Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent. By centering Black diasporic subjects in historical settings, Colomba’s work challenges Western conventions of beauty and significance.

Free with Museum admission, though advance registration is required. Note: Space is limited; first come, first served. Registration does not guarantee admission once the event reaches capacity.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Winslow Homer: Crosscurrents.

Face coverings are required for all visitors age 2 and older, even if you are vaccinated.
