Graham C. Boettcher, the BMA’s R. Hugh Daniel Director, discusses some of history’s greatest collectors, both actual and fictional, exploring the motivations of these passionate gatherers and what separates them from hoarders.

Art and Conversation is for people who want to learn more about art in an informal and interactive setting. These programs, with the exception of May and July, are held on the first Thursday of each month January through October at 10:30 a.m. Coffee and light refreshments are available one half-hour prior in the Main Lobby. Lectures are led by curators or guest lecturers, and attendees are encouraged to ask questions, share thoughts and ideas, and actively participate in the learning process.
