We are pleased to announce the new TAC Speakers’ Series. This program will provide significant enrichment that is a natural complement to the art curriculum and programming at TAC. The series will bring top professionals to present and provide insight on a variety of topics. The mission is to add to art enrichment opportunities through the knowledge and eyes of historians, authors, artists, physicians, instructors, curators, and other experts. We hope that the public will enjoy this initiative and the opportunity to learn in a beautiful facility surrounded by unique works of art in the heart of Highland Park, Illinois.
The inaugural presentation takes place on September 7 at 6:30 p.m. See below.
