Public Lectures on Esther McCoy, Lloyd Kiva New, and Charles Loloma

Each academic year – from September through August – the Museum’s Research Center sponsors research in American Modernism.  Fellowships are awarded to historians of art, architecture and design, literature, music and photography.

The new slate of academic fellows began arriving in early September!
