The Tampa Museum of Art presents CHATS, the first of a new series of community conversations on Wednesday, September 17, 2014, from 7-8pm in the Dickey Family Lecture Hall at the Museum.
The new program will offer guests the opportunity to hear dynamic guest speakers and to become engaged with a diverse range of content inspired by the Museum’s exhibitions, yet not directly related to art.
On September 17, the following scholars will speak about the Post-Mao Generation, which relates to the current exhibition on view at the Museum, My Generation: Young Chinese Artists.
This CHAT is supported by the Museum and World Politics Review, which publishes original analysis for foreign policy professionals. The program is free to the public, with a cash bar and light appetizers.
