ART AT THE MILLENNIUM

A Symposium on Art Issues in the Nation's Capital.

Sponsored by
the Art Dealers Association of Greater Washington

Saturday, September 26, 1998

Cosmos Club

2121 Massachusetts Avenue NW

Members of the Art Dealers
Association of Greater Washington believe there is a need for a broader understanding of the interrelated roles of museum directors, curators, art historians, dealers, collectors, artists, writers, and others interested in the visual arts. In a city where the museums are national and the area arts community focus is perceived as regional, it is important to begin with the museum director's prospective on what directors, collectors, artists, and dealers are doing to strengthen the visual arts in greater Washington DC.
