TAM Docents: BNY Mellon stuff

Hello docents:


The BNY Mellon exhibition, Drawing Line into Form, has just opened, and I am sending along the illustrated checklist and the wall panel texts for it. Thanks to those who were able to come to the symposium this afternoon—it was a really interesting look at what goes into building a sculpture collection for the public.


I also wanted to remind you that we have a chance to hear from BNY Mellon’s curator, Brian Lang, this coming Wednesday for a docent training/public program with a gallery walk-thru:


Curator Lecture: Drawing Line into Form

Wednesday, February 27, 10:30 am

The Corporate Art Collection of BNY Mellon features internationally celebrated modernist and contemporary artists, including 50 works on paper by sculptors that are on view at Tacoma Art Museum through May 26. Come learn more about BNY Mellon’s collection from Pittsburgh-based curator Brian Lang. Free for docents. (This is also a public program.)


Brian is only in town for the week, so this is a rare chance to meet him and hear more about the collection directly! Hope to see you there.


Happy weekend,
