Express lunchtime talks—30 minutes or fewer—are offered most Wednesdays. Facilitated by museum staff members, these conversation-driven thematic talks highlight three to six works on view.

This week, NMWA Associate Curator Virginia Treanor discusses a sampling of works in “Ambreen Butt—Mark My Words.”

About the Exhibition: This focus exhibition of works on paper by Pakistani-American artist Ambreen Butt explores how she combines traditional, labor-intensive Persian miniature painting with an exceptional range of mark-making techniques.
