One Night Stand: William Hawkins

One work of art. By one artist. For one night.

Join Intuit on the last Wednesday of the month for One Night Stand, a free series of art talks led by Intuit staff or an outsider art scholar. For the first One Night Stand of 2021, Paula Santos, senior manager of learning and engagement at Intuit, will engage attendees in an insightful conversation about self-taught artist William Hawkins and his piece The Statue of Liberty.
