One Night Stand: Mr. Imagination

Join Intuit on the last Wednesday of the month for One Night Stand, a free series of art talks that focus on individual works of art from the museum’s collection and exhibitions. This month, arts educator Imani Parkinson will engage attendees in a conversation about self-taught artist Gregory Warmack, or Mr. Imagination, and his piece Untitled (Totem).

One Night Stand is free to join! To show your support to Intuit, please consider the pay-what-you-can option when you complete your reservation. Your contributions help ensure the sustainability of our public programs and support guest lecturers and teaching artists.

Two hours before the event, Intuit will email the Zoom link to those who RSVP on Eventbrite. Please check your junk folder; unfortunately, these emails are sent there sometimes.
