Artists speaking in reverence of their influences
Discovering a source of inspiration is an unparalleled feeling, often resulting in creative expression, new opinions, and perhaps a fresh outlook on life.
Our Under the Influence playlist features sixteen films that explore the network of inspiration amongst artists. In conversation and often in admiration of each other’s approach and expression—perhaps leading to a collaboration or simply a workflow—everyone is encouraged to find guidance through an artist that speaks to their own sensibilities.

Upcoming workshop for educators
Join us on Tuesday, September 14, at 6:00 p.m. ET, for the latest installment of our new five-part professional development series exploring how artists use the five senses in their practice.
For “Visionaries,” behold artists with the vision to consider the human eye. Notice shape, position, brightness, and color during this glimpse into the role of sight in contemporary art.
The program is free and will take place via Zoom.
