N'Namdi Center For Contemporary Art says
The N'Namdi Center announces the N'Namdi Atelier Curatorial Lecture Series, which will begin on Saturday afternoons in April 2015. Featuring a diverse array of voices from the museum community, the lecture series will focus on behind-the-scenes insight to museum practices, and what it takes to plan and curate museum exhibitions.

On Saturday, April 11th, we welcome the Detroit Institute of Arts's Associate Curator of Contemporary Art Rebecca Hart.
