Have you ever wondered who started the New Museum? What’s the story behind the architecture? What is the role of a contemporary art museum today? Participate in a Live Virtual Conversation with New Museum Teaching Artist Rosed Serrano. She will guide you and fellow art lovers through the Museum’s rich history and will share questions for open discussion.

To ensure a safe space for conversation, which sometimes include heavy and sensitive topics, virtual conversations are recorded only for internal, documentary purposes and will not be shared after the program.


We strive to make our programs as accessible as possible. For full accessibility information, including services available by request, please click here.

Serrano is a PhD candidate in English and Gender Sexuality and Women’s Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, and she holds a BA in African American Studies and Creative Writing from Princeton University.
