Conversation has the capacity to connect strangers, to foster romance, and to prevent conflict. As the world grows smaller and we become more conscious of our place in a global culture, visual art and historical artifacts offer subjects around which to gather and dialogue. This exhibition presents a selection of “conversation starters” to prompt just such in-person exchanges.


This exhibition is generously sponsored by the Landrum Educational Endowment Fund.
