MODERN ART MUSEUM OF FORT WORTH HOSTS
GRADUATE STUDENT LECTURESHIP PROGRAM
October 16-November 11, 2012
Tuesdays 6:15 pm, Sundays 1 pm

The Graduate Student Lectureship Program provides local art and art history graduate students the opportunity to research and present public lectures on works on view at the Modern. These focused gallery talks discuss artworks within a thematic framework designed to provide new insights on familiar pieces and special exhibitions. After close observation, rigorous research, and original analysis, students each design an interactive tour that fosters discussion with visitors in the galleries. Each thirty-minute talk is presented twice over the course of the semester, allowing Museum visitors multiple opportunities to attend. Taking place this fall prior to certain Tuesday Evening lectures and on select Sundays, these discussions are free to the public with the price of admission to the galleries and begin in the Museum lobby. The first round of topics will be presented on the following dates and times:
