Join Crystal Bridges Head of Interpretation Stace Treat in the Temporary Exhibition Galleries for a behind-the-scenes look at how the exhibition team combines artwork and interpretation to tell more complete and complex stories. Using our newest temporary exhibition, In American Waters: The Sea in American Painting as an example, this talk will focus on the interpretive elements used to explore the lasting impact European immigration by sea has had on American culture and politics.
