    As the region’s only Smithsonian Affiliate, The Rockwell is pleased to extend this special program to our community in honor of Women’s History Month! This Virtual Scholar Talk is part of a month-long series supporting the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative, designed to create, disseminate and amplify the historical record of the accomplishments of American women.

    In connection with The Rockwell’s annual theme of Environments Examined, Fleming and Trautmann will explore the significance of landscapes, places, and narratives of all kinds, using works of contemporary women artists in Smithsonian collections. The discussion will be moderated by Tricia Edwards, Deputy Director of Smithsonian Affiliations.
