Special Collections with Johanna Drucker

Date: June 25th, 2020
Time: 7PM EST
Tuition: $15 suggested donation

Inspired by the voyeuristic joy of Zoom meet-ups, this series dives deep into the home collections of artists, curators, and independent collectors who we know and love. Through these virtual special collections tours, our guests will share their favorite artworks and objects, as well as the stories that accompany them. Each event will be moderated by WSW’s Artistic Director Erin Zona and will include a Q&A component. Join us Thursday, June 25th, for our first home visit with renowned artist’s book scholar Johanna Drucker.
