Conversation with the Collector: Straighten Up the World

Moderated by Katherine Pill, Curator of Contemporary Art, this talk features arts supporter Jim Sweeny whose many contributions of artworks by self-taught artists with his late wife, Martha Sweeny, comprise the exhibition Straighten Up the World. 

Held in the Bayview Room, this discussion will deepen our understanding of the unique practices of many of the artists in the exhibition, and offer insight into the long-term impact the Sweenys have had on the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts.


FREE with Museum Admission
