Curious about the stories behind abstract art?

Join us for a unique Member Experience this April, where art becomes a language spoken through shapes, colors, and lines. Led by our expert docents, this journey invites NMOA members to venture beyond the canvas and explore abstract art from entirely new perspectives.

What You’ll Discover:

  • New Perspectives: See abstract art through a fresh lens, guided by the elements that challenge and engage the imagination.
  • Deep Connections: Feel and interpret art in deeply personal ways, uncovering meanings that resonate on a new level.
  • Artful Conversations: Engage in enriching discussions with fellow members and expert docents, peeling back the layers of NMOA’s most cherished artworks.

Location: Main Building, North Wing

Registration is required.

This event is exclusively for members. Not a member? Becoming a member is easy, and the benefits extend well beyond our exclusive events. Discover all the ways NMOA membership can enrich your love for art. Learn more about membership and join us today.
