Update: In response to the evolving COVID-19 outbreak, our public programs and tours have been canceled through March 31.
Take a docent-led tour and learn more about Conversations Between Collections, a partnership between the Smithsonian American Art Museum (SAAM) and the Whatcom Museum featuring three SAAM masterworks in “conversation” with the Whatcom Museum’s permanent collection. Our trained docents will provide insight into the themes of identity and place highlighted in the exhibition. Tours begin in the lobby of the Lightcatcher, last one hour, and are included with admission. They are held Saturdays from 2:30–3:30pm.
