"Art History Lecture Series"

The ART HISTORY LECTURE SERIES is a monthly social intended to provide insight into artists, their traditions, techniques and the art movements they are often associated with. Beginning in October, ART HISTORY LECTURE SERIES will travel to 7 cultural spaces throughout the city for a one-of-a-kind event, hosted by nine of Charlotte’s most creative educators, academics and leaders. These casual and educational mini-courses will focus on the cultural, political and historical context of a specific art movement by an expert in the field. The Series begins this October with "Hip Hop: The Last Total Art Movement" led by Mike Wirth and Kia O. Moore.
