Upcoming Programs

Dialogue with Artists Webinar Series

The Branch will conduct an ongoing dialogue with many of the artists we work with, exploring their art and getting a very personal view into their work.

Some of our artists have been creating art for many years. Others are just on the cusp of what promises to be a long and productive career. Each has a unique perspective and approach which we will explore in these webinars.
