Art Matters is presented by the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and is a premier lecture series intended for continuing
adult education in the history of art. Distinguished speakers come from the Santa Barbara area, as well as
across the country, and occasionally, abroad. Art historians, curators, and conservators offer fascinating insights
into their areas of specialization.
Since 2017, Art Matters speakers have been selected, introduced, and mediated by SBMA Deputy Director & Chief Curator, Eik Kahng.
