Related Exhibition Fifty Years of Bay Area Art

Thursday, March 01, 2012, 6:30 p.m.

Meet in the Haas Atrium before moving into the galleries.

Get a singular take on a work of art each Thursday evening as one artist, curator, or specialist shares a perspective on one artwork. In February and March, past winners of the SECA Art Award discuss works by other artists on view at SFMOMA. The SECA One on One talks will also be featured on the museum's blog, Open Space. Talks last 20 minutes.
