The A&H’s Artists’ Critique & Conversation this month features a panel of museum curators from the top local museums to give insight into what curators and museums are looking for in visual artists. This is a unique opportunity for Central Florida’s emerging artists to hear feedback from those who can greatly influence their artistic careers. This month’s panelists include:
