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. Our 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.
SBMA is pleased to offer Art Matters gratis via Zoom while the Museum is closed to the public out of concern for
health and safety during the pandemic.
