Thelma Golden, Director and Chief Curator of the Studio Museum in Harlem, has presided over exhibitions in which painter Amy Sherald’s works were included and was involved in the selection of Sherald to paint the portrait of former first lady Michelle Obama for the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery.

In this inaugural Bard at BPL Lunch Hour Talk co-presented by BPL Presents and Bard, Golden and Sherald will discuss an understated aspect of the creative process, the relationship between curator and artist.

Co-sponsored by the Africana Studies program at Bard College with the support of Humanities New York.
