Have you ever wanted to ask an artist about their work? Or wondered where they got their inspiration? We offer MF Members a unique opportunity to meet current or upcoming museum artists for a morning of coffee and conversation. Join us for the fresh face-to-face opportunity to ask an artist anything!
