Let’s Talk!

Winter 2021/2022
In Conversation with PEM Prize Honoree Carlos Garaicoa
As the 2021 PEM Prize Honoree, Carlos Garaicoa will join the museum in conversation and discuss his PEM Prize project and answer questions about his practice. More details to come.

Let’s Collaborate!

September 2021–February 2022
Art in Action

Follow the Civic Engagement Programs and activities developed in conjunction with the PEM Prize. These programs acknowledge the community organizations with whom we have established partnerships. The PEM Prize presents an opportunity to broaden the scope of the kinds of programs being offered through these collaborations. The goal is to take what Honoree Carlos Garaicoa brought to our museum space out into other community spaces through music, conversations, and arts enrichment programming. Stay tuned for developments on these programs leading up to our celebrations in May!
