Join us for the sixth annual Winter/Miller Lecture on Thursday, March 30, at 6 pm, featuring acclaimed multidisciplinary artist Trenton Doyle Hancock.

Hancock’s appearance at the Tang Teaching Museum is by invitation from Naima Nigh ’23, a Management and Business major. She holds the prestigious 2022-23 Eleanor Linder Winter ’43 Internship, a one-year pre-professional program in museum work for Skidmore students. In this role, Nigh is charged with the research, planning, and coordination of the annual Winter/Miller Lecture.

The Winter/Miller Lecture is made possible through a generous gift by the family of Eleanor Linder Winter ’43. The inaugural Winter/Miller lecture was delivered in 2018 by artist Nicole Eisenman. Chris Ware delivered the second annual lecture in 2019. Wangechi Mutu gave the third annual lecture in 2020. Nick Cave gave the fourth annual lecture in 2021. Juliana Huxtable gave the fifth annual lecture in 2022.

The program will include ASL interpretation by Liz Beauregard.
