Lightning Talks

Join our History of Art students in the galleries and get to know six artworks in sixty minutes! 

Our students will present their own unique and eclectic ten minute lightning talks about a work in the Barber collection… after ten minutes, the bell rings and it’s time to meet your next artwork!
