The Clarice Smith Distinguished Lectures in American Art, organized by the Smithsonian American Art Museum, are a forum for engaging the public in the creative experience and a discussion of what American art is today. Each year, the series offers new insights and perspectives by an artist, a critic, and a scholar. This annual series is made possible by the generosity of Clarice Smith.
