Members and guests


Join ArtTable for a private viewing of the Glenn Ligon exhibition at the de la Cruz Galleries at Georgetown University with a talk by the Chief Curator Albey Miner. Glenn Ligon: To be a Negro in this country is really never to be looked at, on view January 24 through April 7, includes selected works and accompanying labels from some of Ligon’s best-known series.

A light breakfast will be provided

The centerpiece of the exhibition is a group of five never-before-seen grey paintings from Ligon’s celebrated Hands series depicting the Million Man March, a large and controversial convening of African American men on the National Mall in 1995. The works are hung on top of a facsimile of Andy Warhol’s rarely shown Washington Monument wallpaper — a privilege granted to few artists.

If the event is sold out and you would like to be added to the waitlist, please email

Thank you to Maria Sancho-Arroyo  for organizing this program.
