Join other Villagers for a tour of SAAM's reopened modern and contemporary galleries featuring a new installation of American art between the 1940s and today. Nearly 100 works by artists using new materials and techniques — and inspired  by the social, cultural, and technological changes around them — areon view. 

The installation acknowledges the multifaceted  narratives, identities, and artistic practices that exist in the United States by including the often-overlooked histories and  contributions by Asian American, Black, Indigenous, Latinx, women, and LGBTQ+ artists, part of a museum-wide effort to 
provide a more expansive view of American art. It also includes 42 new acquisitions. 

DCV member and SAAM gallery docent, Joele Michaud, has led gallery and video tours at SAAM for 7 years.  If interested afterwards you can join Joele in conversation in the museum's atrium where refreshments are available for purchase.

Plan to meet at 1:20 pm at the F Street entrance of SAAM located directly above the Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro stop on F Street between 7th and 9th Street, NW.
