By Newport Beach Staff
Newport Beach Public Library Foundation (NBPLF) is launching a new series of virtual programs called Studio Chats: A conversation with contemporary creatives in a time of COVID with NBPL Foundation CEO Meg Linton. These 24-minute conversations are followed by a brief Q&A which will give participants an intimate glimpse of what four contemporary artists and an architect are working on and thinking about during this time of physical distancing and uncertainty. The first conversation will be with artist Deborah Aschheim on Tuesday, August 25 at 1:05 p.m. To reserve a virtual seat for this free event, send an email to RSVP@nbplfoundation.org to receive a ZOOM invitation and link.
After a reservation for the event is made, a ZOOM link will be sent along with a little light reading about the presenter, so attendees may enter the conversation prepared with some background information about the guest artist and their work.
This program is the NBPLF’s first foray into virtual programming and is in line with its mission of providing diverse and intellectually stimulating cultural events for the community.
