Lenhardt Emerging Artist Lecture Series: Arcmanoro Niles
Join us for the second Lenhardt Emerging Artist Lecture Series featuring Brooklyn-based figurative painter Arcmanoro Niles, a contemporary artist known for his highly saturated portraits of family members, friends, or himself placed within a domestic setting.
Guests can also see Niles’s work entitled Does A Broken Home Become a Broken Family (2019), which was recently acquired by the Museum as part of the Dawn and David Lenhardt Contemporary Art Initiative, on view in the 60th Anniversary exhibition, The Past Decade.
