According to the BMA’s website, the conversation will focus “on how ongoing systemic injustices inspire and influence their work, as well as the broader role of the arts in spurring dialogue, understanding, and, ultimately, change.”

The event begins at 7 p.m. and is free to the public. It will operate on a first come, first serve basis as auditorium seating is limited. The BMA said overflow viewing will be available at different locations throughout the museum.
